Parking You can drive in for a brief pick up at the East side of the centre off the South side of North road.But the gate to the car park is locked and you have to go to reception to phone a staff member to let in you in and out and you cannot stay for longer than a few minutes. So we do not recommend this.  There is a car park building on North road next to the Brighthelm on one side and LA fitness on the other.

Bus routes: Buses to and from the station have a stop on Queens road at North road outside the Credit Union or opposite.

Bikes can be temporarily parked at the back of the centre and there is a bike rack there by the door into Brighthelm.

Bring a bag: The cuts fit into a plastic carrier which is provided, however we recommend bringing your own plastic bag to wrap it in as the joints can leak, and also a big bag to carry them in. The bag can be heavy so you will probably need to go straight home to put it in your fridge or freezer.  We recommend doing any other shopping beforehand so you don’t have to carry it around for long.
