THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

Describe Online

Overview

This level lies between the District Line platforms (1 - 4) and the Piccadilly Line platforms (5 and 6) which actually lie beneath platforms 1 - 2.

A passage under platforms 1 - 2 joins the escalators to two sets of steps leading down from the platforms, whilst passages lead south towards the two sets of steps from platforms 3 - 4.

We believe a clockwise circulation is encouraged through this area which means that the steps nearer the escalators (east steps) are entrances to the District Line, whilst the others (west steps) are exits from the District Line.

The Main Passage

This leads west from the top of the escalators, to each side of the first set of steps, to platforms 1 - 2, then passes the second set, from platforms 1 - 2. The third set of steps from these platforms (which is not accessible to the public) does not join this passage.
