The lifts open at 9.00am, and start to close around 4.20 (the time varies for each lift). From February onwards the lifts stay open for a further half hour. You can find the exact closing times for each main lift at the lift stations.

The lifts open every day of the week, even on Christmas and New Year's day.

  • Mid December to early February - From 08:30 to 17:00
