Parking at


There is "PAY BY PHONE" parking (subject to availability) outside the club and in the neighbouring roads.
Using cash in Parking Meters is no longer possible.

Free parking for up to four hours is available any day at the south end of Shirley Drive next to Hove Recreation Ground. From there it is approximately a 5 minute walk down The Drive to the club. This is where visiting drivers often park after having first dropped off their passengers and bowls bags at the Club.

There is plenty of free parking from 2.00pm in Shirley Road opposite Hove Recreation Ground.

On Sundays you can park free outside the club and in Wilbury Avenue east of The Drive (Parking Zone “O”).  Be careful though, if you park in Wilbury Avenue west of The Drive (Parking Zone "T") you have to pay, even on a Sunday.

Sat Nav drivers please note:

The Drive Bowling Club shares its postcode (BN3 3PN) with neighbouring properties. The entrance to the club is on the west side of The Drive, approximately 80 metres north of the junction with Cromwell Road, next door to The Conservatory
