Describe Online


The station is located west of Shore Road which runs approximately north past the station before curving east, inside the curve of the tracks. There's an extensive forecourt between this road and the station building. The area immediately outside and south of the main entrance includes the taxi rank and disabled persons' parking, whilst the car park extends east then north along the east side of the station.

There's an entrance to the main car park leading north then east within the station building, whilst the exit is some distance along Shore Road, beyond the scope of this survey. We'll call this entrance the east entrance as you can continue north into the concourse.

The ferry terminal lies to the west of the station building, being linked via a short, covered walkway.

Note, there is no obvious crossing route between the pavement of Shore Road and the station.
