When walking from Central Station, exit via the main doors, cross the road onto Grainger Street, opposite, and take the first left on to Westgate Road. Bath Lane is the third turning on your right hand side. Follow Bath Lane up the side of the city's historic West Wall. After 200 yards you will come to a dual carriageway, St. James' Boulevard. The Core is on the other side of the road.
