From Levels 2, 3 & 4 via the Rotunda staircase and lifts adjacent to TK Maxx.


From Level 1 at Central staircase via Minster Gardens and enter the shopping centre at Starbucks and O2.

For wheelchair access, please take lift to Level 2 at Central Staircase and travel via the Rotunda Staircase lifts.


The Car Wash Company is now open on level 2, offering 18 bays of an eco-friendly car valeting service.

It offers exterior packages including HD waxing and polish, interior packages such as leather treatments, professionally trained staff and market leading products that deliver exceptional finishes inside and out.

For Empire Theatre:

Please use Multi-storey Car Park – open until 11:30pm.


  • Exit the car park from main entrance. Cross over to Minister Gardens, pass the Minister, continue straight ahead until you pass Moti Raj restaurant on your right hand side, then you will see Empire Theatre straight across. We hope you enjoy the show.
