Information for Coach Parties

We welcome groups of visitors to the Flodden Battlefield Trail, but due to the remote location of the site it is unsuitable for large vehicles.

The road leading to the car park is single track and quite narrow, and the entrance to the car park is tight and steep. We recommend that coaches are left in Branxton village, just up the road from the Flodden Battlefield site.
