    The entrance you ant is the one by gregs and hsbc. It's open at about 6am ;). If you want in earlier go down to the abbey entrance to the left is a set of stairs. Go down them and cross the service road. Through the fire exit and up the stairs and follow the corridoor. It comes out bang opposite the apple store.

    Yep. If you look over the left side you'll see a metal gate that should be unlocked. That's your way down ;)

    the hsbc entrance is the other end of lakeside. You want the downstairs side by gregs

    Usual turn out levels at Lakeside?

    Does anyone know how high the turnout has been at Thurrock for other Apple launches? Thinking of heading that way as I'm in central London and may fancy better odds (at picking one up on spec) further out...
