Find a platform from an entrance
All platforms lead away from the far side of the upper concourse, as you come in via the east, middle or west entrances from Cannon Street. The platforms lead from the right-hand side as you come in via the Dowgate Hill entrance.
As you face the platforms, the platforms are numbered 1 - 7 from left to right. Platform 1 is a separate platform along the left-hand side of the station, whilst platforms 2 - 3, 4 - 5 and 6 - 7 are island platforms.
There was no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms at the time of our survey. The station is undergoing major refurbishment, so this may be included during the course of this work.
Note that the tracks for platforms 1 - 4 extend further into the concourse than do those for platforms 5 - 7.
Go up two flights of steps from street level, continue to the end of a short passage then turn right and left into the concourse. Platform 1 is in front of you.
Go into the station via the step-free middle entrance, the lift is on the far wall, slightly to your right. This lift was staff operated at the time of our survey. You come out about in the middle of the near wall of the upper concourse, facing the platforms.
From street level, go up a flight of steps into the lower concourse then continue, up two more flights into the upper concourse. You're on the right-hand side of the concourse, facing the platforms.
From street level, go up into the upper concourse then turn right, platforms 6 - 7 are in front of you.
The direct route between the Underground and lower concourse was closed at the time of our survey.
Note the the each exit from the Underground station is adjacent to an entrance to this station. From the Cannon Street exit, turn right and take the first turning right into the west entrance. From the Dowgate Hill exit, turn right and take the turning right, up the steps via the Dowgate Hill entrance.
At the time of our survey, the gates had been removed so we cannot tell you where the manual or Wide Aisle gate(s) are.
As there's no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms and platforms 1 - 4 extend beyond platforms 5 - 7, you may prefer to get assistance from staff.
