There is a set of black metal doors leading to the Pay and Display car park 90m from our main entrance on your left hand side.

The rooftop is clearly lit at all times while open to the public.
Covered Spaces — Beneath the rooftop there are two floors of covered spaces (Floors 7 & 8) that are used for the public in the case of live events or step free access to the rooftop. Access to the covered floors from the rooftop is via a single concrete ramp that is 3m wide and 11.5metres long with a 7.5 degree gradient). From time to time, live events will necessitate the use of Floor 7, which follows the same incline as Floor 9 above.
