Our venue, Pavilion Dance, is located at the back of Bournemouth Pavilion and is accessed through the Lower Gardens or via Pier Approach, underneath the flyover.
From the Pavilion car park: walk down the steps to the right of the Pavilion Theatre and you'll see Pavilion Dance over-looking the Lower Gardens.
From Pier Approach or Lower Gardens: Pavilion Dance faces the seafront and Lower Gardens and so can be reached either by the steps or accessible ramp.
By train: We are 20 mins walk from Bournemouth train station . For local services call South West Trains on 0845 6000 650 or visit South West Trains, Trainline or Megabus (for cheap tickets to and from London).
By bike: There are several places to lock up your bike on Westover Road and on Pier Approach. Dorset Police recommend D-locks to ensure your bike is more secure.
By car: Parking is available nearby at several car parks that can be found via this link. Please note that town centre car parking can be very limited during busy times and so please plan accordingly. We recommend the car park on Hinton Road (number 17 on the map) which doesn't usually get so busy and is a short walk from Pavilion Dance. The taxi rank is on Westover Road, outside the exhibition center.
