Overview

This station is effectively divided into two parts - that serving the Bakerloo/jubilee lines and that serving the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines. Each section has its own concourse, the two being joined by steps.

AT street level, the entrances, except for the Marylebone Road South entrance, are quite close together, so we'll confine the combinations and permutations of directions to the most appropriate entrances to the relevant section of the station.

See the Environs page for details of the entrances and exits to this station.
