How to find us:

The Edward Alderton Theatre is located at the Crook Log end of Brampton Road, Bexleyheath, behind the Adult Education Centre and next to the Crook Log Leisure Centre.

By car
We are five minutes from the A2 (Blackfen interchange) and approximately ten minutes from the M25 (Junction 2). On-site parking is extremely difficult during term time. There are now two adult education facilities combined on one site and the car parks are always full. Road parking can also be difficult, therefore please allow at least fifteen minutes to find a parking space. Be warned that the car park on the opposite side if the road is intended for tutors only and shuts before theatre performances normally finish.

By bus
The theatre is well served by local buses B16 , 89 & 96 .

By train
Bexleyheath Railway Station, on Station Road, is approximately five minutes' walk. From the station, turn left along Avenue Road and then take the third road on the right, Glynde Road. Follow it to the end and the Adult Education Centre is directly opposite you on the other side of Brampton Road. You will find a pedestrian crossing to your left. Cross it and you will see the theatre in front of you, through the big blue gates behind the Centre.
