How to Find The Clay Studio
We are located in the High Street close to the Fountain Roundabout. Buses stop in the High Street (outside Waitrose on Mondays) and it is a short walk to the town centre car parks. If you travel by Yellow Bus show your ticket or Glo-Card and your Studio Fee is free.
Christchurch railway station is a few minutes walk along Bargates.
We have limited complimentary car parking for our visitors adjacent to The Clay Studio available on a first-come basis. Please ensure you park in one of our four clearly-marked spaces (26-29) which are against the wall adjacent to Sopers Lane. Do not park in non-marked spaces or those belonging to other businesses, as these are allocated to other businesses or residents, unless our staff direct you.
You must let one of our staff know your registration number as soon as you arrive so that you can be digitally logged as an authorised visitor. Your free parking is only valid while you are in The Clay Studio. Cars that are not logged in or parked in the correct spaces will be given a Penalty Charge Notice by wardens. The car park is patrolled by the wardens regularly 24/7 and illegally, badly parked cars or those not logged in will receive a Penalty Charge Notice. If you arrive before we are open please stay with your car until you are able to log in as you risk receiving a ticket if you leave your car unattended.
There are a number of public car parks within easy walking distance including Bank (behind Marks & Spencer), Waitrose, Saxon Square, Barrack Road, Wick Lane and others. These are all run by the local Council and are chargeable.
