Directions give entrance as being on Princess Street - this is a flight of steps that are difficult for anyone with walking problems to navigate. There IS a front entrance on Notte Street but you cannot be dropped off by car here as there are railings between the road and pavement. So, the choice is, tackle the steps or use a wheelchair to get to the front of the building. It is well over 200metres walking distance from drop off point to main entrance.

Car parking is limited (on Princess Street) and other nearest is either the car park at the back of the old Civic Centre or the Theatre Royal, so you need to get from them first - adding at least another 500 metres.

If entering from Notte Street, everything is on the level and the ATOS assessment centre offices are on the ground floor. However, there are a series of heavy doors to negotiate before getting to reception and further corridors to the various assessment rooms.

My advice is to use a wheelchair if you have any difficulties in walking.
