Location

The station is located on the east side of Eglington Street which runs north-south, between Nelson Street (north) and Bedford Lane (south).

The station is set back from the pavement, being surrounded on all but the west side by the open park and ride car park which is separated from the pavement by a row of trees and lamp posts. The entrance and exit to the car park are from the north side of Bedford Lane.

Entrances and Exits

The station has a single entrance/exit which can be reached via a short walkway from the pavement or via paths from the north and south sections of the car park. There's a phone box (slightly north) and a fixed rubbish bin (about opposite the middle of the walkway), on the kerb.

As you approach the station moving east from the pavement of Eglington Street, you pass between bollards (row of three across the west end of the walkway). The building to your left (north) is an electricity substation (not for public access).

You then cross the entrances (left and right) from the car park, with bollards across each one, before you reach the station building. There’s a slight slope up into the booking hall.
