The gallery is housed within the Civic Centre on Commercial Road. There is a large round fountain on the forecourt and the entrance faces Watts Park. Please go up the steps in front of you and you'll be inside the entrance foyer. The flight of stairs directly opposite leads up to the art gallery.
Follow signs to the city centre from the M3/ A33 from the north, A3024 and A33 from the west, and M27/ A335 from the east. The nearest multi-storey car parks are West Park, Grosvenor Square, the Marlands and West Quay.
Due to work on the Civic building and Sea City road priorities have changed; Commercial Road is now a one-way road and exit of this is by way of Above Bar Street. The only route for car users to gain parking/access to the entrance of the art gallery is by way of West Park Road into Commercial Road. This is by heading east from the station, and crossing the junction with Havelock road onto Commercial Road.
Drivers of PSV's and coaches can approach from Above Bar Street and use the bus lane.
The gallery is close to city centre bus stops (two minutes on foot). By train, the gallery is only five minutes walk from Southampton Central Station. Turn right out of the platform one main exit and follow West Park Road up the hill to the traffic lights. The Civic Centre is opposite and the gallery entrance faces the park. There are three trains an hour from Waterloo. For more information see our public transport web page.
