On foot

From Cheltenham Spa railway station:

Leave the station on the northbound-platform side (the side away from the ticket office), and cross Gloucester Road at the pelican crossing. Turn right, and walk up Gloucester Road for about 300 metres. St Mark's is on the left.

From the bus station (about 1 mile):

Walk down Clarence Parade towards Cheltenham Ladies' College, and turn right along St George's Road. At the end of St George's Road (after about three quarters of a mile), turn left onto Gloucester Road. St Mark's is on the right after a quarter of a mile, shortly before the railway station.

By bus

St Mark's is on the route of the D and E buses (see the Stagecoach website for a timetable). In the town centre this can be caught from Pittville Street, the High Street, or St George's Road. Take the bus to the railway station, and follow directions on foot from the station.
