Central Hall is easily accessible, with plenty of parking around the streets of the building and the main multi-storey car parks in the city itself.

Both the M27 and M3 are just 5 miles from our venue with the route offering fantastic views of one of the world’s busiest international harbours. The international airport is just 15 minutes drive away and the main train station is a brisk 15-minute walk through the city’s beautiful parks which boast magnificent gardens and greenery. If you are visiting us off a ship, or decide to moor your yacht at Town Quay Marina, a 10-minute walk to us will keep your interest captured by the spectacular history of Southampton’s ancient walls which proudly still stand today. The only transport links we are missing is a helipad – but, we will work on that!
