Transport & Accommodation

🚗 By Car: Southend Barns is conveniently located just off the A27 south of Chichester. From London and Hertfordshire, the easiest route is straight down the A3 and along the A27, but we prefer the more scenic route down the A283 through Petworth and the South Downs National Park. Ample parking is available on-site and we’ve booked a minibus shuttle service on the night of the wedding so feel free to drive there and enjoy yourselves! Cars need to be collected from Southend Barns by 10am on the Sunday.

🚆 By Train: For those opting for public transport, the nearest train station is Chichester. From there, you can take a taxi to Southend Barns.

🚕 Taxi Services: Local taxi services are available for a comfortable and hassle-free ride to the venue. Pre-booking is recommended.

🚌 Shuttle Service: To make your journey even more convenient, we are organizing a shuttle service at the end of the night from Southend Barns back into Chichester. Details about the shuttle schedule will be shared closer to the date.
