THE PLATFORMS

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There are two island platforms, 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 running east/west with platforms 1 - 2 lying north of 3 - 4.

Platforms 1 - 2 serve eastbound, whilst platforms 3 - 4 serve westbound services. We say this as they are all through platforms which are sometimes all used for through services via Baker Street or Paddington. The central platforms, 2 - 3 are, however, normally used as termini for the District Line (Wimbledon Branch) services which are westbound.

The main entrance/exit to each platform is via the west bridge, from the concourse, though you can change platforms via the east bridge. The east bridge can also be reached via the Marylebone Road entrance/exit which can be used during peack hours.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms nor near any of the steps.
