1. I am looking forward to my next visit there.
2. I am expecting my next visit there.
3. I am anticipating my next visit there.
(Are they all the same and grammatical? What is the part of speech of 'there'?)
1 and 3 are fine. 2 doesn't mean what you want it to mean!
"There" is simply an introductory word for this type of sentence construction. From what I've read, most other languages don't have an equivalent, and it's pretty much an idiom in English.
It is not the subject of the sentence, but merely an introductory word.
