             Travelling to the Venue

  • Please note there are major roadworks on the A338 coming into Bournemouth which is causing very long delays for most routes into and out of Bournemouth. Please ensure you leave enough time to access the venue or find alternative routes.
  • Parking is free of charge at The Littledown. However, it is a busy centre, especially on Saturday mornings, so parking may be limited. Alternative parking can be found at Kings Park Car Park, Bournemouth, BH7 7AF which is pay and display, or there is a Tesco on Castle Lane East, but parking is restricted to 3 hours maximum.



Good luck to all swimmers, I hope they perform as they wish and swim fast.
