THE EARL'S COURT ROAD CONCOURSE

Describe Online

Overview

This section of the station consists of an entrance area at street level and the main concourse which is at a lower level.

You enter the entrance area from Earl's Court Road facing west. This is a rectangular space from which you can go down a flight of steps or the ramp into the concourse.

The main concourse is also a rectangular space divided by the gate line which runs north/south near the top of the steps to platforms 1 - 2, then juts east to include the lifts to/from the Piccadilly Line Platforms.

From inside the gates, there is stairs access to the west onto the District Line platforms and lift access to the Piccadilly Line on the east. A walkway leads from the north side of this area to lifts to the District Line platforms.
