FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

Describe Online

Overview

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

There is lift, escalator and stairs access from each platform to Level 0. There is also lift access between Level 0 and Level -1 in both malls and escalator access between these levels in the East Mall.

There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

We understand that platforms 1 and 2 usually serve southbound trains to Lewisham, platforms 3 and 4 usually serve northbound trains to Stratford whilst platforms 5 and 6 usually serve northbound trains to Bank. On this basis, we believe that, as you face the front of the train, the doors would open:

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1
From Platforms 2 - 3
From Platforms 4 - 5
From Platform 6

From Platform 1

As you go from the front of southbound trains, you pass the gap to steps to the Ticket Hall. The next recess leads to the East level 1 Exit towards the lift and escalators.

As you go from the rear of southbound trains, you pass the gap from steps from the Ticket Hall. The next recess leads to the East level 1 Exit, towards the lift and escalators.

See the relevant section of the Change Platforms page for the route to the West Level 1 Entrance.
