from the M27…

Leave the M27 at junction 5, take exit from the motorway roundabout signposted A335 Southampton. The road is called ‘Thomas Lewis Way’, and head towards Southampton City Centre. Go through the first lights, fork left at the second lights, signposted City Centre & Portswood (staying on the A335 Thomas Lewis Way). You pass a Shell petrol station on your right–hand side, then turn right at the next lights (3rd from Motorway) just before Machine Mart, then turn immediate left at the next lights (4th from Motorway) opposite B&Q. You are now on Portswood Road, The Brook is about 200 yards down this road on the left hand side.

We would advise that you park to the rear of the venue on the Belgrave Industrial Estate making sure not to block any part of the road, as lorries come and go at any time of day or night. DO NOT PARK ON THE CORNER!!! If you block the lorries, the show may be interrupted, and you will feel embarrassed!

As with all town parking, make sure that you conceal any valuables. There should be more street parking on Portswood Road, or on the side roads.
