Overview

The area outside the gates is a rectangular space with the entrance from the Embankment on the south and that from Villiers Street on the north. The gate line is along the west side of this space.

The area inside the gates bridges the tracks of the District Line. The stairs exit from platform 2, eastbound, the gate line, the stairs exit from platform 1, westbound and the escalator from the East Passage of the Intermediate Level are on the east side.

The west side includes the escalator from the West Passage of the Intermediate Level, a passage leading west, which we'll call the West Passage and the escalator to the West Passage of the Intermediate Level.

The West Passage leads to the stairs entrances to the District Line platforms 1 and 2, plus the escalator to the South passage of the Intermediate Level.
