From Platform 1, London Underground, Eastbound

Go towards the front of the train and locate the stairs in front of you, into the concourse. turn left into the short passage then turn right and go up three flights of steps to concourse level. Turn right here, then move to the left-hand wall. The manual gate is in the first gap on your left and the automatic gate line is beyond this, with the exits towards the far end of the gate line. Go through the gates and continue forward through the exit.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, London Underground, Westbound

Go towards the rear of the train, locate the stairs in front of you and take the right hand flight (exit). Go up two flights of stairs into the concourse. Continue to the gate line, in front of you. The manual gate is to your left, in a separate gap in the wall, whilst the exit gates are towards the right-hand end of the gate line. If you prefer to use the manual gate, I suggest you turn left immediately at the top of the stairs and continue for a few metres before crossing the concourse. If you find a blank wall in front of you, you've overshot; turn right (180 degrees), follow the wall on your left to locate the manual gate. Go through the gates and continue forwards through the exit.

The manual gate is to your left, in a separate gap in the wall, whilst the exit gates are towards the right-hand end of the gate line. If you prefer to use the manual gate, I suggest you turn left immediately at the top of the stairs and continue for a few metres before crossing the concourse.
