The station is bounded to the north by Duke Street Hill, which continues (east) into Tooley Street. Joiner Street, which is partially pedestrianised runs north/south between the Underground and mainline stations. Borough High Street runs north/south to the west, whilst St Thomas Street (east/west) runs south of the station.
The lower level of the mainline station lies east of the main concourse of the Underground station, whilst London Bridge Bus Station is at a higher level, above the Underground station and south of the main entrances to the mainline station.
There are two exits leading north onto Duke Street Hill which we’ll call the west and east exit.
There are three routes to Joiner Street which lead to/from the mainline station. We understand that the two to the north (nearer Tooley Street) are entrances to the Underground station, whilst the third is an exit.
There's an entrance on each side of Borough High Street, the one on the west side is signed Borough Market.
The west entrance from Duke Street Hill leads south into the Underground concourse, go up the slope.

Whilst details of the mainline station lie beyond the scope of this survey, we noted a series of automatic gates on the east side of Joiner Street. The signage suggests that these are exits from the mainline station from which you could either turn right into Tooley Street, or continue into the main concourse of the Underground Station.
Although details of the mainline station lie beyond the scope of this survey, we noted a passage leading east, near the south end of the pedestrianised part of Joiner Street, past a series of retail outlets, towards the escalators to the mainline station.
As you leave the Underground Station, you'd turn right and continue along Joiner Street until you reached this passage.
