Castlepoint is a major shopping centre served by several frequent bus services. There are four bus stops, A B C & D for Castlepoint, none of which are more than two minutes' walk from the hall. Stop A (by the Castlepoint Pharmacy) is on the wrong side of the dual carriageway; the other stops are on the same side as the hall, Stops B & C very close-by. Opposite Stop 'D' is a road sign to the Library; walk that way. Indeed, if you are unsure which way to go, ask for the Library or, if it seems more appropriate for your interlocutor, Nando's!
