This is by far the most complex page in this guide. The North Indicator is in the top right-hand corner of the page, pointing upwards. The north crossing of Pond Street is shown near the top left-hand corner of the page, outside the main entrance which leads to your right (east) into the main building. Downward steps, from beyond the scope of this map are shown reaching the pavement from the north outside the entrance. The walk way is indicated as starting south from the foot of the steps then turning left (east) into the building.

Opening Hours

The main building closes at 11pm, doors are closed at the level of the 2 columns next to the cash machine. Coaches leave the station until 12am on stand E. Stand D and E are open until 12am. From 11pm to 12am, if you need assistance or want to use the toilets inside the main building, press the button to your right of the automatic door at the exit of Stand E2, a member of staff will come to help.


Outside the Building

To the right (east) of this paved area is the vehicle access area described in Page 2. You can follow the fence on the left-hand side which curves right (south) before you reach the crossing of Route B.
