The MAIN CORRIDOR

Describe Online

General Information

The corridor leads south from the concourse, between WH Smith and the ticket office. The barrier, consisting of a metal rail with a gap at each end, defines the entrance, to your right and exit, to your left which suggests a preferred anti-clockwise flow around the station.

You're in the northwest corner of the car park, there's a post box and trolley point to your right, on the west wall. In front of you, on the north side is the normally closed entrance to the east corridor, towards the lifts. This can be opened by staff on request at the ticket barrier. Beyond this is the normally closed east entrance, via steps to platforms 6 and 7, which is sometimes available during events at the Millennium Stadium.
