Travelling to Marchwood

The C27 bus operates from Totton rail station to our Construction & Marine Technologies Centre in Marchwood.

The current 0827 hrs departure from Totton coincides with rail arrivals from the wider Bournemouth and Southampton areas; the 2021/22 departure time will be reviewed in advance of September and reflect revisions to SWR rail services. Please email travel@brock.ac.uk for recommendations as to which trains may offer the fastest journey.

Learners travelling from the Hythe and Waterside area have the option of using the Blue Star 8 and/or 9 public services to access Marchwood village (8-minute walk to the Centre).

Travelling by personal transport

Car parking permits for our large student car park will be available via the online BrockShop from August 2021 at an annual cost of £100. There is also a designated parking area for motorcycles on site (£25 annual charge).

A one-way system is in place – all drivers must enter the site via the main College entrance and leave via North Road.

There are two covered bicycle parking areas on site where students may store and lock their bicycles. Please note that bicycles are left on site at the owner’s risk.

Regrettably, due to health and safety and security concerns, e-scooters are not permitted on site. Students are reminded that the use of privately owned e-scooters on a public road (and/or pavement) is also currently illegal.
