Blue Box is located in St Denys, approximately 5km (3 miles) north of Southampton city centre, opposite Bitterne Park on the River Itchen.
Due to its proximity to the Southampton Solent University and University of Southampton campuses it is a popular location for students. There is an abundance of takeaway restaurants, an ALDI supermarket close by and many venues catering for students.
Along with neighbouring Portswood, St Denys is increasingly seen as home to Southampton's burgeoning music scene, with many venues now offering regular live music and opportunities for local musicians as well as nationally acclaimed acts.
Located a short walk away in Priory Road, the St Denys Centre is a vibrant hub with a hall space for sport / leisure activities, areas for bands to practice, rooms for clubs and associations to hold events, and a floodlit multi-use games area (football, netball and tennis). The Centre also hosts a wide variety of regular activities, including sport, fitness, craft, social and more.
Bevois Valley Road is situated on the city's major bus routes and the Uni-Link service, as well as being within walking distance of some campuses.
