Overview

This section describes routes amongst the two island platforms of the Victoria and Northern Line (Bank Branch) which are normally reached via escalators from the intermediate level and the island platform of the Northern Line (Charing Cross Branch) to which there is only stairs access from the intermediate level.

If an escalator between the intermediate level and platform isn't available, the other one of that set is normally upward. This may require you to use the spiral staircase to reach platform level.
