We have moved back to St Margaret's Bus & Coach Station

With the station redevelopment works now complete, our ticket office and coach stops have permanently relocated back to St Margaret's Bus & Coach Station.

The new and vastly improved St Margaret's Station is just an 11-minute walk from our temporary ticket office and coach stops on Charles Street, which are now closed.
