The Concourse

Describe Online

Overview

This is a long, almost rectangular space oriented east/west with the main entrance at the west end and the platforms leading to the east. The travel centre is on the south side, whilst the bar and café are on the north.

A side entrance on the south side leads from the Eastgate shopping centre, whilst a further exit beside platform 6, to the north, leads from the car park. This is also the route to platform 7.
