By car, the simplest route is via Braunston Road/Oakham Road heading southwest from Oakham. Upon arrival into the village, turn left onto Church Street and the church will be up ahead.
The main entrance to the church is on the Cedar Street triangle junction, but access can also be gained down a small path round the side on Cedar Street.
Some roadside parking can be found in the village. There is a pub across the road for refreshment, which also offers some parking spaces.
There are no bus routes to Braunston, so the closest stop is in Oakham (a 40/45-minute walk away). Information can be found here.

Three miles south-west from Oakham lies the pretty village of Braunston. All Saints Church is in the centre of the village and is set in a moderately-sized churchyard. The earliest parts of the church date to the 12th century.
The grassland includes a number of wildflowers such as Fox and Cubs and Thyme-leaved Speedwell. The trees and shrubs also support a wide range of galls.
