INTRUCTIONS TO GET TO THE SPACE

Head into the King’s building, then turn left into the corridor just past the stairs. Go along the corridor and through the bridging section, as if heading to the North Wing. Up the steps at the end, and the East Wing building is on your right. Through the wooden door, then up to the 3rd floor. You can get the lift from this point, or take the stairs.

Please note that the lift is small, so can only take 2-3 people at a time and is not wheelchair accessible.
