Overview

Platforms 1 to 12 are directly accessible from the platform level concourse, whilst the route to platforms 13 and 14 is more complicated.

The main entrance and that from the long stay car park bring you into the platform level concourse towards the north (platform 1) side, whilst routes from the Metro Link service, taxi rank and London Road, bring you opposite the gate to platform 10 (via steps and escalator) or platform 12 (via the lift), towards the south end.
