How do I get to Thorpe Park?

*Taken from*


Where is Thorpe Park?

Thorpe Park is just 20 miles from Central London, with plenty of transport links between Junctions 11 and 13 of the M25 (but for some reason you can't get here from J12...).

SAT NAV address
Staines Road

Using GPS

Some Sat Navs aren’t so savvy and may lead you to Norlands Lane so keep a lookout for the big coaster track over the main entrance on Staines Road.


THORPE PARK Resort is within easy reach of London. From the M25 take junctions 11 or 13* and follow A320 to THORPE PARK.
