By Train

Bournemouth station is a 5 minute stroll from Metropole Market. From the station, walk south-east towards Holdenhurst Rd. Turn right by the Texaco garage, and follow the road. Head under the Bear Pit and follow signs to the town centre.

By Bus

We can confirm that the famous Yellow Buses have been confirmed as our Transport Partner and they are right behind everything we’re doing at our Metropole Market. Holdenhurst Road will be closed during our market and the closest bus stop will be on Christchurch Road, outside Naked coffee and opposite Bournemouth College on the B3064. A perfect jumping off and on point for visitors to our market.


By Car

If travelling by car, there are several car parks just a short walk from our Metropole Market. From the West, North, or East, leave the A338 at the junction marked Travel Interchange onto St Paul’s Road (A35) and follow signs for car parking.
