The TICKET Office

Describe Online

Overview

This is a T-shaped space with the leg of the T (the main passage) running east/west and the cross (north/south) at the west end. The cross passage serves the lifts. There's a ticket sales window in front of you as you come in via the south entrance and another window on the south side of the main passage, opposite the shop, whilst steps near the east end lead north for platform 1, eastbound and south to platform 2, westbound.

This station is now gated. There's a bi-directional Wide Aisle Gate before each lift and a gate line across the beginning of the main passage.

You go in, up a slight slope, facing east. There's tactile matting inside each set of doors.

In the Middle

There's a gap, with tiled flooring, between the tactile matting at the doors and that between WH Smith and the sales window. This tiled area leads between the two halves of the cross passage. The tiled floor resumes beyond WH Smith and the sales window, continuing to the far (east) end of the ticket office.

There are two departure screens (one for each platform) above this space.
