Find an exit from a Platform

Describe Online

Overview

At the time of our survey, there was step-free access from platform 1, southbound to the ramp, but stairs-only access to the Underground Concourse, via the subway. See the Environs page for details of ramp access to this station.

Each set of steps consists of four flights of 11. The steps are divided by a double central rail which is interrupted across the landings between flights. We understand you're asked to keep left.

At the time of our survey, the gate line for platform 1, southbound included a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the right-hand end as you leave the platform, followed by two automatic entrances then two automatic exits. The gate line for platform 2, included a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the right-hand end, as you leave the platform, followed by two automatic exits, a single automatic entrance then another automatic exit.

This station was undergoing redevelopment at the time of our survey and we presume lifts will be installed during this work.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Southbound
From Platform 2, Northbound

From Platform 1, Southbound

Go beyond the rear of the train and continue through the gates into the ticket hall.

For the Ramp

Take the turning right then follow the route, left then right again onto the ramp.

GO TO END

To the Underground Concourse

Continue forward, then go down four flights of steps into the subway. Turn left then take the turning right into the Underground Concourse.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Northbound

Unless you want to go to the ticket hall of the Mainline station, we see little point in your going through the subway to reach the ramp. You can go into the Underground Concourse, turn left through the exit then turn right into Queen Victoria Street, or turn right into the Underground Station.

Go beyond the front of the train, follow the route between the hoardings then go down four flights of steps. The gate line is in front of you, go through the gates and continue into the Underground Concourse.

For the ticket hall, turn right before you reach the entrance to the Underground Concourse. Take the turning right and go up four flights of steps into the ticket hall.
