FIND THE EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This section will describe routes from each platform to the main entrance, which leads from platform 2, via steps and lift. No mention will be made of the temporary entrance beside platform 9, which we understand will be closed shortly.

You can leave platforms 3 - 8 via lift or steps, though there is only stairs access from platforms 9 - 10.

There's tactile paving along all platforms except 7, 9 and 10.

From Which Platform?

  From Platforms 3 - 8
From Platforms 9 - 10

From Platforms 3 - 8

The steps and lift are about in the middle (north/south) of this island platform. The lift shaft is on platform 3, separated from the building, whilst the foot of the steps is in a gap in the building, nearer to platform 3.

From Platforms 4 - 5

The doors will open on your right on platform 4, on your left on platform 5, as you face the front of the train.

Continue, beyond the front of the train. The building starts about ten metres beyond the beginning of the platform. Move right, onto platform 3 and continue to the lift or steps.

From Platform 6

We understand this is a bi-directional platform, so the doors open on your left, for northbound, right for southbound trains, as you face the front of the train.

Ideally, you should go through the gap in the building, about in the middle of the platform. You'll pass the foot of the steps on your right. For the lift, continue, onto platform 3, turn right and locate the lift shaft, separated from the building by a short passage.

From Platforms 7 - 8

The doors will open on your left, for platform 7, right for platform 8, as you face the front of the train.

Continue, beyond the front of the train. The building starts about ten metres beyond the beginning of the platforms. Move left, onto platform 3 and continue to the gap in the building on your right. turn right then locate the foot of the steps on your left. Otherwise, continue forward and locate the lift shaft, separated from the building by a short passage.

Via the Lift

See the lifts page for details.

Go to level 1, the bridge, turn right, go down the ranp then follow the right-hand side, up the ramp to the lift to platform 2. Go to level G, platform level. Turn right (180 degrees) go past the locked barrier and locate the next gap in the building, which leads to the gate line. Continue to the gate line.

Via the Steps

Go up eight, eight six then six steps, curving left, onto the bridge. Follow the left-hand side and go down six, six, eight then seven steps, curving left, to platform level. turn right and continue to the gate line

From Platforms 9 - 10

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train.

The steps are about in the middle of the platform. The section near the front of the train at platform 9, near the rear of arriving trains at platform 10, is gravel, rather than concrete.

Go up eight, eight then seven steps. Turn left and go up six steps onto the bridge. Continue, down six steps then go up the six steps in front of you onto the west bridge. Follow the left-hand side, down six, six, eight then seven steps, curving left to platform level then turn right and continue to the gate line.

There's a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the left-hand end of the gate line and the automatic exits are normally to your right of this. Go through the gates, bear left (11 o'clock) and continue through the exit. Continue forward, onto the island in the forecourt, for taxis. Otherwise, turn right and follow the pavement round the forecourt to reach the crossing. See the Environs page for details.
