The Hippodrome is on Harbour Road. Just drive into Eyemouth past the school and roundabout, and follow the signs for the Harbour, turning right at the bridge over the Eye Water. The Hippodrome is about halfway along the harbour, next to The Ship public house. There will be a flag outside, unless the weather is very windy. (The building was originally a granary, later converted into the Fishermen's Mission, and the Mission sign, in big letters, is still on the building. Hippodrome is an early nickname which has been revived!)

Parking is available in front of the building, metered, at the top end of the harbour, and in the square on the Bantry, in front of the Coop. All are in walking distance.
