Unit 7 Grange Business Centre, Tommy Flowers Drive, Kesgrave, Suffolk, IP5 2BY, United Kingdom


This welcoming centre has a downstairs reception and hang out area, with a toilet, baby change, and tea/coffee making facilities. Our light and airy studio is upstairs. If you are unable to access an upstairs studio please contact us and we will help you find your nearest accessible location.


From the Kesgrave Main Road/A1214, when you reach St Michaels roundabout, turn off to Grange Farm. (Also signed to the Farmhouse Pub.) Follow Ropes Drive to the next roundabout, where you take the 2nd exit onto Hartree Way. Keep going until you see the sign for Orwell Vets, after which you turn left onto Tommy Flowers Drive. Just past the vets is the Grange Business Centre on your left. We are in here on the left hand side.


There are some parking spaces available in the Business Centre car park, which we reserve for those with mobility issues or twins. There are plenty of spaces on the surrounding roads, just a short walk away. Please do not park in the Orwell Vets car park.
