From the M3
Leave the M3 at junction 6, and follow the signs for the town centre (left at the junction 6 roundabout, straight across the Black Dam roundabout, and first slip road). This then puts you onto a dual carriageway heading towards the town centre.
Once you reach Eastrop roundabout (the very distinctive Barclays building is shown here behind the roundabout), turn left towards 'Top of Town'.
You'll know you're headed in the right direction if you see the Festival Square shopping centre on your right.
Follow this single road for 200 yards or so, and turn left at the 2nd set of traffic lights into London Road.
Goldings is just on the right. Public parking can be found on the left in the Eastlands public car park. If there are no spaces, head back onto the one way system (go back the way you came and then turn left out of London Road. Follow the road to the right. There are plenty of spaces opposite and next to the Jaguar showroom.
From the M4
Leave the M4 at junction 11, and follow the signs for Basingstoke along the A33.
After 14 miles or so, you'll come to the 'Chineham Wave' roundabout, as shown above. Follow the signs for the M3/Town centre along the short dual carriageway. At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit towards the ring road.
Keep left as you join the ring road, and take the immediate first left, signposted Basingstoke Town Centre (shown above). You'll now be on the dual carriageway towards the Eastrop roundabout and the Barclays building. Follow the M3 instructions from this point (above).
The Reception
The Wellington Arms Hotel is situated on the A33, half-way between Basingstoke and Reading (7 miles from both). A map can be found here.
Getting from the Ceremony to the Reception
