How to access the building
The building is situated in Ravelin Park on Cambridge Road (PO1 2SE). You can enter through the revolving doors on the side of the building that opens up into the park. You won’t need anything to access the reception area, you can simply come straight in. If you are coming by car, we have an underground car park, which you can access through the Museum Road side of the building (please note that there are limited spaces and there will be a charge to park, unless you are a public member, in which case you can park for free for an hour and a half.)
Accessibility has been carefully implemented into the design of the centre, there are lifts from the car park to the centre as well as to each floor. Every area of the centre is wheelchair accessible. If you would like to find out more information on the accessibility of Ravelin Sports Centre, you can on our website.
