Julian May Opticians is located in Southbourne Grove almost opposite to the ESSO petrol station. You can park for an hour in Southbourne Grove completely free but if you are coming for a full eye examination then you may need a little more time. The most convenient places to park are in the side roads either behind or in front of the shop.

There is a small park on the corner of Southbourne Grove and Southbourne Road diagonally opposite the practice and you can park in Southbourne Road all day. Alternatively, you can often park in Pine Avenue. Pine Avenue is not accessible from Southbourne Grove. You'll need to turn down Grand Avenue and take the second turning on the left onto Pine Avenue. As a last resort, there is a car park at the top of the Grove on the corner of Woodside Road. It is inexpensive but about a 350 to 400 yard walk back to us.
