How to tell a load bearing wall?

We have built in wardrobes in our bedrooms. We want to remove them to open up the space and have so far removed the doors and the frame. We are left with an alcove due to a a concrete side wall which runs out from the main wall (about 3ft long). This wall appears to have been built during the construction of the block of flats. How can we find out if this is a load bearing or retaining wall?
