Take the A14 towards Felixstowe. At the large roundabout beside the water tower (junction 60), turn right, remaining on the A14 (the Port of Felixstowe road). Then at the next roundabout go straight on towards the town centre. Cross over the railway level crossing, then turn right at the traffic lights onto Langer Road.
There are two main areas at Landguard:
Manor Terrace - from Langer Road turn left onto Manor Road, signed with a brown/white sign showing a bird and parking. The road then bears right into Manor Terrace. Follow this to the car park at the end. There is free parking and public toilets. Manor Terrace provides a great starting point for exploring the Nature Reserve.
