There are two steps between the pavement and concourse , at the regular entrance and exit, which are on the east side of the concourse. There is, however, a step-free entrance underneath the Hilton Hotel, on the south side. We understand this is normally only open during peak hours.
The main concourse is a rectangular space divided into two by the gate line the entrance section of which runs northeast/southwest, whilst the exit section runs north/south.
The area outside the gates at the south entrance is a confined space with a help point on the left-hand (west) wall as you enter.
You enter and leave the lifts facing west. A passage leads north then east from the lift exits to the gate line.
