PLATFORMS 3 - 4, ANTI-CLOCKWISE

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is an island platform running approximately north/south with platform 3, metropolitan Line, lying east of platform 4, Circle Line anti-clockwise.

The entrance/exit via the bridge is about in the middle of the platforms.

There's a metal barrier from the north end of platform 4 to the front of the train and a row of pillars along the platform. There's no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms.

To Reach

From the left-hand (west) end of the bridge, you can go down 10 then 14 steps in either direction (north or south) to platform level. We found no indication as to which set of steps is intended as entrance or exit. We believe you arrive to either side of the middle of the train.
