Walk down John street to the town centre turn right into High St. This continues on to become Parliament St.
Follow signs to city centre, Parliament street is a continuation of the High street which is the main street in town so we are very central.

Follow this road as it goes around the back of the supermarket car park and turn right at the next traffic lights. You are now on Parliament st. Drive down past the courthouse and we are on the right hand side number 35.
