How to Find the Region Office

Directions to St Ann's Manor Car Park

Region has a car park which you may use if parking space is available; please note that Girlguiding South West England shares this car park with the company next door. Access to the car park is from Friary Lane through green painted double wooden gates. If you are using satellite navigation and wish to enter by the car park, the postcode to use is SP1 2HB.

Please note that the keyholder is responsible for locking the building and gates upon departure, so if you are travelling to the office by car and are intending to stay on and visit the city centre, please make sure your vehicle is moved out of our car park immediately after your meeting or visit ends.

Arriving by rail:

Salisbury is served by a fast, frequent rail service from Waterloo Station, London. Taxi services are available from Salisbury railway station, which is approximately a 5 minute journey from St Ann's Manor.

Note: The front door on St Ann Street is not always open at weekends. If you are attending a meeting or training in the building, please walk around to Friary Lane and enter St Ann's Manor through the car park and back door. 

 

Sarah is involved in day to day finance operations relating to income, and expenses for training, trips, and events.  She works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9.00am - 12.00noon.
