The Chrysalis is located just 3 minutes from Junction 14 of the M1 motorway which runs from London to Leeds. Its address is Japonica Lane, Willen Park South, MK15 9JY. When departing the M1, turn left (if heading Northbound) turn right (if heading Southbound) onto the A509. At the Northfield roundabout, turn right (the 3rd exit) onto Portway/A509. Go straight on at the next roundabout (2nd exit). At the next roundabout, turn right (the 3rd exit) onto Brickhill Street. We recommend that you park your car in the Peace Pagoda car park (the first right). The Chrysalis can then be accessed by crossing the road via the footbridge (a 3 minute walk). Disabled car parking is available closer to the theatre itself. From 1 August 2013 car parking charges will be introduced at the Peace Pagoda and Tree Cathedral car parks near Willen Lake. Charges will apply to all vehicles between 6am and 10pm and are: 50p – up to half hour 80p – up to one hour £1.20 – up to two hours £2.20 – up to four hours £4 – all day

Milton Keynes is popular for its many ‘redways’, criss-crossing paths that allow both pedestrians and cyclists to travel side-by-side. The Chrysalis, therefore, has ideal access facilities for both cyclists and pedestrians. Take a look at MK Web’s map of redways, where we’re located in cell F4.
