Find a platform from an entrance

Describe Online

Overview

If you need a ticket, we suggest you go in via the Strand entrance, which is directly off the Strand. You go along a short passage into the concourse then turn left, across the entrance/exit from the Underground station and join the ticket queue, in front of you. Similarly, if you're coming from the Underground, leave via exit 4 and turn left to join the queue.

There are two gate lines in the concourse. The left-hand one is for platforms 1 - 4, whilst the right-hand one is for platforms 5 - 6. There's a manual gate at each (left and right) end of the gate line for platform 4, whilst there is only one, at the left-hand end of the gate line for platforms 5 - 6.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of any of these platforms, though there is tactile flooring indicating the front of four car trains.
