THE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

This page describes three island platforms, all of which are accessed via the bridge. These are numbered 1 - 2, 3 - 4 and 5 - 6 from the south.

Platforms 1 - 2 are for the mainline (Chiltern) services with platform 1 northbound towards Aylesbury and platform 2, southbound towards Marylebone. There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

Platforms 3 - 4 are the Northbound Metropolitan Line, with platform 3, normally serving trains to Watford or Amersham, whilst Platform 4 is normally for trains towards Uxbridge. There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

Platforms 5 - 6 are the Metropolitan Line southbound, towards Baker Street and beyond. There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

We'll describe each island platform from the west end.
