THE LOWER FOYER
This is a rectangular space at Lower Ground level with two rooms (1 and 2) on the east side. There are stairs from the Foyer at the south end of this space. The ladies toilets and refreshments area are at the north end, near the entrance from the lift.
Locate the lift in the Lift Area and go down to the "BT" or Lower Ground. As you leave the lift, the gents toilets are in front of you, beyond the foot of the steps and the Lower Foyer is through the doors to your left.
The stairs leave from the far left-hand corner of the foyer, as you enter from the Lift Area. The stairs are aligned at an angle (southeast) and are divided into two sections by a central rail.
You go down ten steps, going southeast, turn left (180 degrees) then go down 13 steps, going northwest into the Lower Foyer.
See the Lift Area page for details of the stairs. Continue forward from the foot of the stairs, through the doors into the Lower Foyer.
As you enter via the lift, you're facing east, across the space. The Refreshments Area is to your left and the exhibition space, is to your right.
