Overview

This is a terminus station with three island platforms. We are not aware of any preferred arrival platform for individual services. For odd numbered platforms, the doors will open on your left (right for even numbered platforms) as you face the front of the train.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms, though tactile flooring indicates the rear of four car trains.

The taxi pick-up point is outside the middle exit, between Whistlestop and M&S.

Go beyond the front of the train, to the gate line in front of you. There's a manual gate at the right-hand end of each gate line, and one at the left-hand end of the gate line for platforms 1 - 4. Go through the gates.
