The Travel Centre

Describe Online


The Travel Centre is on the south side of the concourse, about 11 o'clock from the station entrance.

Although there are five doors facing north into the concourse, we only found the western two of these in use at the time of our survey. We understand that the preferred exit is from the left-hand (east) side of the building, beside platform 2.
