The airfield is about 2.5 miles northeast of Swindon on the B4000 Shrivenham to Highworth road.
From the M4: Take the A419 North signposted Cirencester. After 3.5 miles, turn off following signs for A420 Oxford for 2.5 miles. After passing under a railway bridge with a divided carriageway, less than one mile ahead turn right signposted Shrivenham. Soon after entering the 30mph zone, turn left signposted B4000 Highworth. This will take you out of Shrivenham and over the A420. Less than one mile further on, VOWHGC is on the left.
From the North: Leave the A419 at its junction with A420 Oxford road. Follow instructions as from M4.
From Oxford: Leave the A420 at the first junction signposted Shrivenham (near the Defence College). Travel 2 miles through Watchfield and Shrivenham. On starting to leave Shrivenham take a right turn (hard to see) signposted B4000 Highworth. This will take you out of Shrivenham and over the A420. Less than one mile further on, VOWHGC is on the left.
