Facilities and refreshments For toilets, good café, leaflets, booklets, post cards, farm shop garden centre - we recommend Wyatts (c. 1 mile east of the Rollright Stones towards Great Rollright).

Directions

By road
Located on the Oxfordshire/ Warwickshire border just off the A44

By public transport
By bus - Stagecoach number 50 (Chipping Norton – Stratford Upon Avon) passes within 1/2 mile. However you’ll need to ask the driver to stop for the Stones. Alternatively, get off at Long Compton and there is a nice, but steep, walk up the hill - a permissive footpath brings you out near the Stones.
