Taplow lies about twenty five miles from the West-End of London by road and Taplow railway station is about twenty three miles from Paddington Station on the Western Region main line. From the west we are about fifteen miles from Reading.
The nearest motorway routes are, from the east – the M4 to the south (about three miles from junction 7, Slough West) and the M40 from the north (about five miles from junction 2, Beaconsfield/Slough or the same distance from junction 3, High Wycombe). Note that junction 3 of the M40 is limited access – entry and exit to and from the East (London) only. From the west – the M4 to the south (it’s advisable to still use junction 7, Slough West as Junction 8/9 involves more conjestion through Maidenhead) and from the north, M40 junction 4, High Wycombe/Maidenhead (about seven and a half miles).

There is a free car park on the north side of the green next to the village hall. The vehicular entrance, which also serves the school, is off Rectory Road on the west side of the green. The village is very busy and the car park full when school starts at 8.30am – 9.00am and finishes at 3.00pm – 3.30pm. On Sundays however there is plenty of parking space.
