Benfleet U3A meets on the last Tuesday of the month, except in December. The meeting starts at 14:00 and normally lasts for 2 hours. We meet at Richmond Hall, High Road, Benfleet, Essex SS7 5HA. Please note that Richmond Hall is no longer accessible, by car, via the High Road.
Whilst there is a car park for Richmond Hall, accessible via Richmond Avenue, it is also used for the local shops and so can be very busy before the monthly meeting. There is an alternative car park, for the WRVS Hall, a short walk away that is also accessible via Richmond Avenue.
Directions to Alternative Car Park:
- From High Road, turn into Richmond Avenue
- Drive past Richmond Hall car park entrance
- Bear right and drive past the "Goldenley Care Centre"
- Turn Left into "Community Hall & WRVS Day Centre" car park.
Once parked please make your way back to Richmond Hall via Richmond Avenue.

If you have any "Speaker" suggestions or, as Speaker Secretary of another U3A, you wish to know more about some of our speakers, then please contact our Speaker Secretary via the Speaker Secretary email contact link.
