Directions from The Brandywine Area/Longwood Gardens

You have two choices depending where you are in that area:

If you are convenient to Route 322 or 202, you will want to head south until you intersect with route 95. Get on 95 North heading toward Philadelphia.

Near the Philadelphia Airport follow signs for 76 West (marked Valley Forge)

After getting on 76 West, exit from the right at #346B Grays Ferry Avenue/University Avenue.

Bearing straight ahead toward the Universities. When you get near the hospitals you will pass under a pedestrian bridge marked Veteran Affairs/Medical Center.

After you pass under this bridge you want to turn left at the third light toward Baltimore Avenue

When you turn, be sure to stay in the left lane marked for Woodland Avenue. After the traffic light you will pass a cemetery on the left and trolley station on the right.

Proceed past Woodland Terrace to the fork in the road. You want to bear right onto Chester Avenue. The Gables is at 4520 Chester Avenue. You want to go to the fourth stop sign and turn left onto 46th Street. The Gables is on the left corner at 4520 Chester and is easily recognized by its red brick exterior, large wrap-around porch and candles in the windows.

For convenient off-street parking please use The Gables' driveway which will be on your left after you turn onto 46th Street.

From the driveway, walk through the side yard and up onto the porch, around to the front door. Ring the doorbell and you will be welcomed by the hosts.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alternate Route

Another way from the Brandywine is more direct using city streets rather than the interstates.

Take Route 1 North. Shortly after you pass the Riddle Hospital and Granite Run Mall the road divides. Follow the signs for Media, you do not want the sign for Philadelphia. Instead you will want to go straight through the town of Media.

Keep on this road (Baltimore Pike) for about 15 miles. You will pass numerous malls and stores and traffic lights. Just keep going straight into the city.

At 46th Street turn right. You will pass through one traffic light at Springfield Avenue and then come to a stop sign at Chester Avenue. The Gables is across the street to the left, on the corner.

Continue on 46th Street and turn left into the driveway.

After you park the car, walk through the side yard and up onto the porch, around to the front door. Ring the doorbell and you will be welcomed by the hosts.
