This comprises two "education suites" which lie north of a corridor leading west from the centrral space of the Lower Ground Floor. A single-storey, glass roofed "pavilion" runs along the north side of this wing, past both suites.

The west end of the corridor leads to a fire escape staircase which emerges at the west end of the Ground Floor.

To Reach

From the Main Entrance, continue, past Reception then turn right. Continue, past the foot of the west stairs and go through the door in front of you. The first door on your right leads to Education Suite 1, whilst the second leads to Education Suite 2. You need to go through either of the suites to reach the Pavilion, though this can be reached via a path to the west of the forecourt.


You go through a double pull door going west into a vaulted passage leading west.
