Overview

Note that there's a complex route involving 56 steps between the ticket office and each platform, so you may find it easier to use the lifts. We'll give details of the stairs routes as well, in case you prefer to do this, or the lifts are out of action.

Note that this station is now gated. There's a bi-directional Wide Aisle Gate between each lift and the main ticket office, so you'll need to go through two gates when changing platforms via the lifts.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.
