Platform 1, Southbound

Describe Online


This is a separate platform along the east side of the station with tactile paving along the edge.

All facilities are towards the north end of the platform, that is towards the rear of the train.

To Reach

This platform can be reached via ramp or lift from the east forecourt, or via stairs from the ticket office.

Via the Lift

Turn left from the exit from the ticket office, follow the building round to your left then right and take the turning left into the passage towards the lift.

As you reach the end of the passage, the lift door is to your right with the call button to your right of the door as you face the lift. Go up to platform level, leave via the same doors then turn right onto the platform. We believe you're near the rear of the train.

Via the Ramp

Turn right from the exit from the ticket office and continue to the end of the building. Follow the wall right then left then continue up the first ramp. Turn right (180 degrees), go up the short ramp then turn left (180 degrees). Go up this ramp then turn right (180 degrees) and locate the gate on your left. If this is locked, continue up the ramp in front of you, to the door and press the assistance button to your right of the door. Otherwise, turn left onto the platform, we believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

From the Ticket Office

As you come in from the east forecourt, the sales windows are on your left and the stairs are in front of you. Go up eight steps, turn left (180 degrees) then go up eight steps to platform level.

From here, you can turn right (180 degrees) and continue through automatic doors, onto the platform. Otherwise, if you turn left, follow the railing round to your left then continue, through automatic doors, onto the platform. We believe you're near the rear of the train.
