FIND A PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE
The Underground and mainline stations have separate entrances from Station Place, whilst the Underground station has two more entrances, one from Seven Sisters Road and the other from Wells Terrace.
There are no ticket sales facilities at the Seven Sisters Road entrance. The ticket sales windows for the mainline station are off Station Place - these also sell tickets for journeys covering the Underground, though you cannot buy Oyster cards at the windows for the mainline station. The major entrance to the Underground station, with ticket sales facilities is from Wells Terrace, via the north concourse.
Note that there are no gates in this station, though there are several Oyster card readers between each entrance and the platforms for mainline and Underground services.
