From Euston Mainline Station to RNIB Judd Street

Summary of Route

Our route takes us from the Network Rail concourse of Euston Station via the southeast exit into Eversholt Street which you cross and turn right. You cross three side streets before reaching Euston Road where you turn left. You cross three more streets before you cross Euston Road. You continue to the next junction and turn right into Judd Street. Following the right hand side of Judd street, you cross two side streets before reaching the RNIB building. If you keep to your right, you'll climb the ramp and easily locate the main entrance on your right.

Detailed Route

From within Euston Station, head for the southeast exit from the main concourse this is just next to W H Smith. You may find it easier to find the passage to platforms 4 - 7 and go, away from the platforms, past the passage from platforms 1 - 3 (to your left), past the food shops (on your left), past W H Smith, then turn left and go through the southeast exit of the concourse.

Continue (east), past shops, to the top of the steps to Eversholt Street. If you miss the steps, to the left you find a metal barrier, whilst to the right you'll find either a store for station trolleys or barrier.

Go down a flight of steps, these steps are divided by a central rail. turn left and continue, across a small entrance, to locate the tactile paving for the crossing. This crossing has an audible signal and post with push button to your right (south) of the crossing.

Cross Eversholt Street and turn right (south). Cross Lancing Street, pass a pub with tables on the left side of the pavement, cross Wellesley Place. You pass a crossing on your right towards Euston Bus Station, before you reach Grafton Place.
Note that details of Euston Bus Station lie beyond the scope of this survey.

Cross Grafton Place, which is a traffic light junction, beware buses moving between Grafton Place and the bus station.

There's a dip in the pavement just before you reach Euston Road. Continue to the tactile pavement adjacent to Euston Road before turning left here or you may find yourself in the fire station.

You've reached the junction between Euston Road (east/west), Eversholt Street (north) and Upper Woburn Place (south). This is a traffic light controlled junction with no pedestrian controlled crossings. If you were to cross Euston Road here, you'd reach an island from which you turn left to reach the pavement. I suggest you continue along the north side of Euston Road.

There's a dip with tactile paving, in the pavement before you reach Churchway. Cross Churchway, which is a traffic light junction with some clutter around the crossing, again there is no pedestrian control of this crossing.

Continue, noting the dip in the pavement and cross Chalton Street, a minor road with no traffic lights.

Continue and cross Ossulston Street, which is a wide road with traffic lights, but no pedestrian control. You're now passing the British Library. Locate the crossing, via tactile paving, just beyond the junction. The push button, plus rotating cone, for the north half of Euston Road is to your right (west) of the crossing. Cross to the central island, turn right, follow the railings on your left and locate the post with the push button and rotating cone to your left. Cross the south half of Euston Road and turn left. You're now on the south side of Euston Road, just east of Mabledon Place.

Continue to the next junction and turn right into Judd Street. Continue south, crossing two wide side streets before you reach the RNIB building. You pass a few blank doors before you locate the ramp to the entrance. This ramp occupies the right hand portion of the pavement. Alternatively, you can take the two steps up, just in front of the main entrance, which is an obvious feature.

As you enter the building, via automatic doors, Reception is in front of you to your right (about 1 o'clock). The Resource Centre is to your right.
