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 along the edge of the Bakerloo Line platforms in this station.

From the Entrance

To the District Line Westbound Platform 1

Take the turning right, into the West Passage, continue to the end then turn left. Go down a flight of steps, turn left then go down another flight and turn left onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

To the District Line Eastbound Platform 2

Take the turning right, into the West Passage, continue to the end then turn right. Go down a flight of steps, turn right then go down another flight and turn right onto the platform. We believe you're near the rear of the train.

GO TO END

To the Northern Line Northbound Platform 3

Continue forward. You go down six steps then take the turning right. Continue down the escalator in front of you to the Intermediate Level. Turn right, pass the steps to the District Line to your right then turn right for the escalator to platform 3. Go down to platform level and continue onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

To the Northern Line Southbound Platform 4

Via Escalators

Take the turning right, into the West Passage, then take the first turning left. Turn left again then go down the escalator. Continue, down six steps, across the passage, to the escalator in front of you. Go down to platform level then continue onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

Via Steps

You can go via either District Line platform, though perhaps the route via platform 2 eastbound is marginally simpler.

Take the turning right into the West Passage, continue to the end then turn right. Go down a flight of steps, turn right then go down another flight of steps onto the platform.

The downward steps leading back to your left are an entrance to this platform, so we suggest you move left to the wall then take the first turning left. You turn left (180 degrees) then go down nine then nine steps. Turn left, go down five steps then turn left again into the Main Passage of the Intermediate Level.

Continue, across the passage off the end, down three flights of steps and continue onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

To the Bakerloo Line Platforms 5 - 6

Continue, down six steps then take the turning right and continue down the escalator in front of you. Turn right, take the first turning left and continue, down the escalator, to the Level -3 Passage.

To the Northbound Platform 5

Move right, continue to the end of the passage then turn right and, keeping left, go down a flight of steps to platform level. Ideally, you should take the second turning right from here and continue onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

To the Southbound Platform 6

Move right, continue along the passage then take the first turning right and, keeping left, go down a flight of steps to platform level. Take the first turning left onto the platform, we believe you're near the front of the train.
