Entry to W5

You'll need to access W5 via the back entrance, as the main entrance is still closed due to ongoing development work. The back entrance is accessible at the rear of the Odyssey complex by walking from the carpark along the Maritime Mile walkway by the water’s edge following our ‘W5 this way’ signs. The entrance is opposite the marina. Check out our map below.

Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your timeslot.
