Overview

There is no step-free access through this station.

There is tactile paving along the edge of the District and Northern Line platforms, but none on the Bakerloo Line platforms in this station.

As you face the front of the train, the doors will open:

From Which Platform?

  From the District Line Westbound Platform 1
From the District Line Eastbound Platform 2
From the Northern Line Northbound Platform 3
From the Northern Line Southbound Platform 4
From the Bakerloo Line Northbound Platform 5
From the Bakerloo Line Southbound Platform 6

From the District Line Westbound Platform 1

As you go from the front of the train, you pass three sets of seats before the wall retreates to the entrance from the Concourse. Continue beyond this, to the next recess then turn right (180 degrees) to the exit steps.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass four sets of seats before the wall retreats. Move left then continue to the gap on your left, cross this then move left to the foot of the exit steps, in front of you.

Go up two flights of steps, to the Concourse, then turn right. The gate line is on your right, the Wide Aisle exit is at the far end, with the automatic exits before this.

Go through the gates then either take the turning left for the Villiers Street exit, or the turning right, down four steps, to the Embankment.

GO TO END

From the District Line Eastbound Platform 2

As you go from the front of the train, you pass five sets of seats before the wall retreats, move right and follow the wall. Turn right into the first gap, the steps from the Intermediate Level are to your right, whilst the exit steps are to your left.

As you go from the rear of the train, the entrance steps are behind you. The first gap leads to steps to the Intermediate Level, turn left into the next gap then left again to the exit steps.

Go up two flights of steps, to the Concourse and turn left. The gate line is to your left with the Wide Aisle exit at the beginning and the automatic exits beyond this.

As you go from the front of the train, the first gap on your right is the exit, turn right here and continue to the escalator in front of you.

As you go from the rear of the train, the first two gaps on your left are entrances, take the third turning left and continue to the escalator in front of you.

Go up to the Intermediate Level, turn right and continue past the steps to the District Line platform 2, then turn right to the escalator to the Concourse.

Go up to the Concourse, the steps from the District Line eastbound platform 2 are in front of you, bear right (about 1 o'clock) for the gate line. The Wide Aisle exit is at the left-hand end, whilst the automatic exits are to your right of this.

From the Northern Line Southbound Platform 4

We presume you'll normally do this via the escalators, we counted 54 steps to the Intermediate Level, 23 to the District Line then 30 to the Concourse - 107 steps in all. We'll include directions via the steps, in case you need to avoid escalators.

As you go from the front of the train, you pass four gaps on your left which are entrances. The first two are from the entrance/exit passage, the third is opposite the escalator, whilst the fourth is opposite the steps from the Intermediate Level. Turn left into the fifth (last) gap and continue to the escalator in front of you.

As you go from the rear of the train, the first gap on your right is the exit. Turn right here and continue to the escalator in front of you. Note that the second gap is towards the steps.

Via the Escalators

Go up to the Intermediate Level, turn left, continue to the end of the passage then turn right to the escalator to the Concourse.

Go up to the Concourse, turn right then go up six steps and continue past the steps from the District Line westbound platform 1, on your right. The gate line is on your right with the Wide Aisle exit at the far aend and the automatic exits before this.

Go through the gates then either take the turning left for the Villiers Street exit, or the turning right, down four steps, to the Embankment.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

You could go via either District Line platform, I don't think it makes much difference, so these directions are via the westbound platform 1.

Go up three flights of steps to the Intermediate Level. Turn left then take the first turning right, go up six steps then move left into the recess before continuing up a flight of steps to the District Line westbound platform 1.

Continue forwaerd, up two flights of steps, to the Concourse then turn right. The gate line is on your right with the Wide Aisle exit at the far end and the automatic exits before this.

Go through the gates then either take the turning left for the Villiers Street exit, or the turning right, down four steps, to the Embankment.
