Friendship House on Elm Grove (Southsea PO5 1JT). Sadly not My Little Pony HQ but still brilliant nevertheless.

There’s limited free parking on the site on a first come first served basis. Access via Woodpath. Nearest car parks are Isambard Brunel multi-storey car park PO1 2BX (12 mins walk to venue) or Ravelin Car Park, 1 Museum Rd, PO1 2LN (10 mins walk to venue).

It’s 15 min walk to Fratton train station, also 15 mins from Portsmouth & Southsea train station. Bus number 7 and 18 stop right outside Friendship House.
