There are 2 stations in Malvern - Malvern Link and Great Malvern. The nearest station to QinetiQ Malvern is Great Malvern. Great Malvern is on the London Paddington to Hereford line. There is also a service from Birmingham New Street via Great Malvern to Hereford.
There is a regular service from Birmingham Airport (Birmingham International) to Birmingham New Street. There are also rail links to Great Malvern from Gatwick and Heathrow Airports via Reading.
Visitors travelling on the M5 from the South (Bristol or Gloucester) should turn off to take the M50 at junction 8 of the M5.
Leave the M50 at junction 1 and follow the signposts for The Malverns and Three Counties Show Ground (on brown signs). From here, there is no straight road to Malvern and the following turns are required:
Initially, follow the A38 in the Worcester direction.
Turn Left onto A4104 to Upton on Severn.
On crossing the River Severn bridge at Upton on Severn, turn immediately right onto B4211.
On leaving Hanley Castle village, turn left onto B4209.
Having driven straight through Hanley Swan village, after about 1 mile turn right at the traffic lights by The Three Counties Showground.
After about 1 mile you will rise over a brow, take the first left into Peachfield Road, there will be open common land to your right. Take the 2nd right into St Andrews for about 1 minute and then turn right into the QinetiQ Site. Once through the first set of ‘open’ gates turn immediately left before reaching the main gates.
From the North (Birmingham) leave the M5 at junction 7 and follow the signs to Malvern or The Malverns. Initially the road is numbered A4440, and necessitates negotiation of several roundabouts. Then follow A449 signposted to Malvern or The Malverns.
About 10 miles from the motorway, pass a large Malvern town sign.
Turn left at the first roundabout, sign posted variously Business Park, Malvern Science Park and Malvern Technology Centre. (A large supermarket should be on the right just after turning off the A449.)
Continue following MALVERN TECHNOLOGY CENTRE signs, which will take you through Barnards Green. When approaching the Barnards Green Island, follow briefly left but immediately turn right at the Giveway sign on the island (opposite the Fish & Chip shop), then turn left into Court Road (by the Post Office). Continue along Court Road which then changes into St Andrews Road and after about 3 minutes the QinetiQ entrance will be on your left-hand site. Once through the first set of ‘open’ gates turn immediately left before reaching the main gates.
This route can become congested around Worcester at peak periods so some visitors may prefer to leave the motorway at the M50 junction 8, and then follow the directions to the site as if coming from the south.
