LOCATION

ANDREW NEWSON PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES
The Annex, 1 Brookfield Villas, Crowborough Hill, Crowborough, East Sussex TN6 2EG

1-2-1 and 1-2-2 tuition is usually run from my studio in Crowborough, East Sussex.
Crowborough is close to the Kent & Sussex border, near Tunbridge Wells.

It is also possible to do 121 training in London, your home or place of work. These do have some additional costs though. Please note there is a dedicate page for 121 Training in London.

Getting there:
My studio is easily reached by road or rail.

Crowborough is on the London Bridge to Uckfield train line and it takes approximately 1 hour from London Bridge to Crowborough, direct. My studio is just a 1 minute walk from Crowborough Train Station.

Parking:
I do only have one parking space at my studio so it’s best to check with me first if you can park at the studio. However there is a free public carpark at Jarvis Brook Recreation Ground which has short and long stay parking. This is just a 1 minute walk to my studio.

Contact:
There are further directions, including a map on my Contact page here.
