The Concourse

Describe Online


As you come in through the main entrance, you go through a short passage leading north, there's a map of the area on the wall before you reach the circular concourse.

The two entrances from the forecourt are on the south side, the platforms lead to the east, whilst the walkway towards the ferry leads west. The ticket office, including a single sales window facing east is in the middle of this space.
