The Centre is situated within the campus of the National Construction College East (NCC) at Bircham Newton, near King's Lynn, Norfolk PE31 6RH. The Centre is easy to find in West Norfolk, where there are many road signs giving directions to NCC. The Heritage Centre is located near the B1155 road, from Stanhoe to Great Bircham, which passes through the NCC site. It is close to the Birches Hotel & Conference Centre. Additional direction signs are displayed within the campus on open days. There is also a large external sign, which will help you to locate the building from the car park.

Ad-hoc visits:

If you are a representative of a large group who wishes to visit, but you are unable to attend on one of the scheduled open dates, we will try to accommodate your group by opening the Centre on an alternative date. To pre-arrange such an ad-hoc visit, you are requested to contact one of the following trustees, who will do their best to accommodate you: David Jacklin Tel: 01379 741884 or Avril MacArthur Tel: 01362 860139 . We regret that we are not able to offer ad-hoc visits to individuals who are not part of a larger group.
