Age UK Milton Keynes, Peartree Centre, 1 Chadds Lane, Peartree Bridge, Milton Keynes MK6 3EB
The Peartree Centre is a modern redbrick building with blue window frames, set back from the road with a car park in front of it.
If you have any problems finding us, please ring us on 01908 550700 and we’ll give you directions.
Directions by public transport
Travel details: By bus - route 4 is the most convenient for The Peartree Centre. If travelling from the direction of the hospital, you will need to cross under the dual carriageway using the underpass at the roundabout. The V8 Marlborough Street is a fast road so we would urge you to use the underpass.
If you are coming from the north of Milton Keynes you will get off the bus on the same side of the road as The Peartree Centre. It is also possible to catch the 14 to Milton Keynes Hospital, if you don’t mind a 10 minute walk.
Directions by car
The Peartree Centre is on the corner of Chadds Lane with the V8 Marlborough Street, to the south east of Central Milton Keynes, not far from the hospital. If driving north up the V8 Marlborough Street (a dual carriageway), look out for a feeder lane on the right which is signposted Peartree Bridge. This turning is between the roundabouts on the H7 Chaffron Way and the H8 Standing Way and is quite easy to miss.
If you are driving from the north, down the V8 Marlborough Street, after the roundabout for the H7 Chaffron Way take the turning on the left into Chadds Lane. If you get as far as the turning for the Peartree Bridge Inn, near Roni’s Hand Car Wash, you have gone too far.
There is free parking at the Peartree Centre however spaces are limited and you may need to park on the road instead. Arriving earlier may increase your chance of getting a space close by.
