PLATFORM 2, METROPOLITAN LINE, EASTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

There are three steps down from the Underground concourse, to the platform. Two bridges, which we'll call the east and west bridge join the east and westbound platforms to the concourse. The west bridge also gives access to the Old Broad Street exits.

There’s a row of pillars along the middle of the platform and some tactile paving near the edge, though this is not as distinct as the modern variety.

To Reach

We understand that the preferred entrance is from the left-hand (east) of the two sets of steps opposite the gate line. You go down three steps, going south, past a billboard to your left, onto the platform. You’re about in the middle of the platform.

The two other access points from the concourse are intended as exits, the middle one towards the gate line, whilst the west exit leads towards the escalators to the Central Line.
