GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Describe Online

Lines Served

This is a through station on the London Underground (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan) and First Capital Connect (FCC) lines. This station offers a much simpler connection between the London Underground and FCC services than does Kings Cross St Pancras.

Layout

The lines run approximately east/west serving four separate platforms, numbered, from north to south, as follows

The FCC platforms lie approx 1.5 metres lower than those of the London Underground.

The concourse is located on a bridge across both lines towards the east end of the station. Another bridge joins all platforms near the west end. Four sets of stairs join the Westbound London Underground, platform 2 to the Southbound FCC, platform 3.

Note that there are stairs and a slope from platform 1 which are not intended for public use.

We understand that people are expected to circulate anti-clockwise through the station - keep right.

Accessibility

there is stairs-only and no step-free access throughout this station. We therefore believe the station is accessible to Guide Dog users, but not to wheelchairs.
