Crawley is midway between London and Brighton and is easily accessible by motorway, air (Gatwick Airport is four miles away) and rail.
Crawley is minutes away from the M23 motorway which links to the M25. The Hawth is well signposted on all major routes into the town. There is free car parking on site for 250 cars.
From the South (M23 Junction 11) or from West (A264)
At M23 junction 11 roundabout coming from either the south or Horsham (on the A264) take the Crawley (A23) turning which takes you downhill to the outskirts of Crawley. At the roundabout (with Broadfield Stadium football ground on the left) turn right onto Southgate Avenue. At the third set of traffic lights take the right hand lane and turn into Hawth Avenue. Follow the road and you’ll find us on the left hand side.
From the North (M23)
Take Junction 10 exit and follow signs to Crawley. At roundabout take first exit which will take you past Tesco and you’ll come to a set of lights (with Blockbuster store on your left). Take a right at these lights. Continue along road (A2220) until you come to a large ‘square’ roundabout with a Holiday Inn Express hotel on it. Drive past the flats on the left hand side and take the next left which takes you over a railway bridge. The Hawth is right at the next roundabout.
From the East
Approaching Crawley along the A264, take the second exit at the Copthorne Hotel roundabout (Copthorne Way A264) which will bring you to the roundabout at Junction 10 of the M23. Take the second exit (marked Crawley) and continue as above.
