Overview

This is an island platform, running north/south, with platform 3, northbound, lying west of platform 4, southbound.

The central reservation at the foot of the escalators to/from the concourse is about in the middle of the platforms with three passages leading to each platform.

The entrance from the Piccadilly Line, via passage 2, is at the north end. A passage extends south from here with the lifts to the concourse and intermediate level on the west side and a help point on the east.

The stairs exit into passage 2 is the second passage from the north end of the platforms.

Beyond (south of) the central reservation are the entrance from the Jubilee Line, passage 5, the exit to the Jubilee Line via passage 4 and a blank passage between the platforms.

There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.
