The bus stop is not right outside the centre. I would have to get off the 201 on Burnbank St, and then face a walk that is supposed to be 6 mins for healthy people, and would take me much longer and leave me exhausted. Hamilton West in Clydesdale St is the closest train station to the centre.

The bus stop is right outside if travelling by train u go to either Queen St/ Central stn.
Central Stn is nearer.
Toilets are on ground floor and easy accessible.
They saw me on the ground floor which was great.
I do have a car but was terrificed I would not get parked as I am not sure about that end of town.
I did felt there where a lot of there staff ( I was not imagining this) out and about the building?
