Directions to Southend Library, The Forum
The Forum is right in the heart of Southend in Elmer Square, just off the High Street and around the corner from the University of Essex and South Essex College. Google Map.
If you live near the town centre, a visit to The Forum is the perfect excuse to stretch your legs and get a bit of fresh air. You could head over after dropping your kids at school or pop in on your way to the Royals to get some early Christmas shopping done.
The nearest bus stop to The Forum is Warrior Square, a very short walk away through the square and across the High Street and Chichester Road. Alternatively, you can get off the bus on London Road and walk past Sainsbury’s and down to The Forum along College Way. Plus, any bus travelling to the town centre goes to the Travel Centre, which is just a 10 minute walk from The Forum.
Southend Victoria is just a seven minute stroll from The Forum, Southend Central to The Forum in just two minutes.
For those of you who prefer to use two wheels instead of four, there is plenty of cycle parking at The Forum. Just five minutes ride from Adventure Island, The Forum could be the perfect spot for a break and quick bite to eat if you’re cycling from Shoeburyness to Westcliff.
Parking is available at South Essex College or at the ‘Lego Building’ in University Square?
