Describe Online


Although announcements in the lifts refer to this as the "Northern Line Level", it is actually 21 steps above the Northern Line platforms.

This area includes the interconnecting passages between:

The escalators from the Northern Line Concourse go down southwest onto the east end of a passage which leads to steps to the Central Line, we'll call this the north passage.

A passage leads south from here, towards the escalators and steps to the DLR, we'll call this the main passage.

The passage to the Waterloo & City Line leads approximately west from the main passage, whilst two passages towards the Northern Line lead east. The passage nearer the escalators to the DLR which we'll call the south passage, passes the lift to the DLR before reaching the area at the top of the steps to the Northern Line.

There are four lifts, numbered 2 to 5, from the east, which are operated automatically. Each is at the south end of a short passage, unfortunately, at the time of our survey, there was no audio indication and little visual indication of which lift is the next to arrive.

The Passage to the Waterloo & City Line

You leave the main passage, going approximately west. This passage continues vaguely west, up a slight slope until you reach the east end of platform 7.
