The Carrick Suite

Overview

This suite consists of three rooms off the West Passage at Level 1.

The rooms are numbered from 3 to 1 as you move away from the escalators or Main Stairs. There's a single pull door entrance to each of these rooms.

To Reach

From the Main (VIP) Lift

Leave the lift at Level 1, bear right and go through either of the single pull doors into the passage. Turn left and go through the first single pull door on your right for Carrick Room 1. The right-hand door is almost directly opposite the entrance to Carrick Room 2, whilst to the right of this is the single pull door entrance to Carrick Room 3.

From the Escalators

Turn left (180 degrees) from the top of the escalators and continue through the push double doors in front of you. You pass the pull double doors to Harris Room 1 on your right, then single doors to room 3, 2 and 1 of the Carrick Suite.

From the Main Stairs

Move forward until the pillar is on your right. Continue, bearing slightly to your right, past the escalator well on your left. You go through a set of push double doors into the passage. You pass the pull double doors to Harris Room 1 on your right, then single doors to room 3, 2 and 1 of the Carrick Suite.

At the time of our survey, the three Carrick rooms were opened up in theatre style with seating facing left towards what would be a screen on the far left-hand wall.
