1) From Waterloo: which is on the 'Bakerloo'; 'Jubilee' & 'Northern' Tube Lines.
Take a South West Trains train towards Twickenham The train journey (Waterloo to Barnes) takes around 18 - 20 Minutes.
2) From Vauxhall which is on the 'Victoria' Tube Line.

RAC ROUTE PLANNER
We've only just found this great tool. Simply enter the post code/Airport/Address of your starting point. Then enter the Post Code/Address of your Destination. Select 'Fastest' & other options & the Route Planner will give you all the steps of your journey. The 'InterActive Map' can be a little tricky to use. But they have provided a static version too. The written directions are good and can be printed or even emailed to yourself.
For The Tree use: SW15 5RG.
This gives you directions into Beloe Close. Follow the instructions until you get to Beloe Close. Do not enter, but go straight on into the private part of Gipsy Lane. The lane turns left & then you will see the Site.
