PLATFORM 1, METROPOLITAN LINE, WESTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

Two bridges connect this platform to the concourse. The west bridge also links to the Old Broad Street entrances, whilst the central bridge leads directly into the Underground concourse. In addition, there is an east bridge which merely connects the eastbound and westbound platforms, some distance east of the Underground concourse.

There are no entrances/exits directly from this platform.

There is some tactile paving along the edge, though this is not as distinct as the modern variety.

There is space between the steps to the central and west bridges and the wall of the station which provides an alternative route for people when the station is busy.

To Reach

We understand that the preferred entrance is via the steps at the east end of the Underground concourse, via the central bridge. Alternatively, you can reach the platform via steps from the west bridge.
