THE CONCOURSE

Describe Online

Overview

The area outside the gates is a passage which runs west from the gate near the foot of the stairs from the north entrance then turns south, underneath Euston Road and continues, via an upward slope past the main gate line. You then go down four steps, past the south gate line and the two lifts before you reach the foot of the stairs to the south entrance.

We'll describe this passage in three sections, from the north to south entrances.

The area inside the gates is the rectangular space between the gate line and the entrance to the bridge between the platforms, plus the bridge itself.
