Find an exit from a Platform

Describe Online

Overview

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms.

Since this is the first station out from Charing Cross, we'll assume that people entering the station will need the outbound platforms A and C, whilst those leaving will have arrived on the inbound platforms B and D. In the less likely event that you won't do this, note that:

To Which Exit?

  To Waterloo Mainline Station
To Southwark Underground Station
To Sandell Street

To Waterloo Mainline Station

Get off the train, turn right and continue, up the ramp to concourse level. If you reach a blank wall in front of you before you reach the concourse, you've arrived on platform D, turn right then take the turning left and continue into the concourse.

Turn left, take the turning right and follow the passage, over the foot bridge to Waterloo Mainline Station. At the end of this foot bridge, there are stairs to either side of the two escalators, the downward escalator is normally the left-hand one. Go down into the mainlline concourse.

If you need the lift, take the turning left, just before the stairs and escalators and locate the lift door on your right. The call button is to your right of the door and the controls inside the lift are on the near side, to your left as you enter. Go down into the mainline concourse.

See our guide to Waterloo Mainline Station for more details.
