The Cowper and Newton Museum is in Olney, Bucks, UK, MK46 4AJ and is easy to find!

Parking:

There is ample free parking in Olney but make sure you check the time limit on your location.  Follow this link to take you to a map showing free carparks in Olney on the Olney Town Council website.  There is also parking on the roads around Market Place and along both sides of High Street.

On foot:

To find us look for a large brick building on the corner of Olney’s historic Market Place, a few miles north of central Milton Keynes (two doors to the left of Costa Coffee).  A short walk around the corner will take you to Church Street where you can view the Vicarage – here William Cowper’s friend John Newton preached and wrote ‘Amazing Grace’ (please note this is a private residence and can only be viewed from outside).
