CHANGE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

There is stairs-only access from each platform to the concourse.

These directions are limited to Monument Station so as not to duplicate the information in our guide to Bank Station. We'll therefore include two routes, one via the Monument Concourse, the other via the subway off the west end of the platforms.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

Note also that the section of platform near the front of eastbound (rear of westbound) trains is narrower than the rest of the platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Westbound
From Platform 2, Eastbound

From Platform 1, Westbound

As you go from the front of the train, you leave the steps to the subway behind you, then pass three pillars in the middle of the platform and a series of doors on your right before you reach the recessed area to the exit. There are two pillars, dividing this into three gaps, ideally, you should turn right into the third of these gaps.

As you go from the rear of the train, the section of platform beside the rear car is narrower than the rest of the platform. You then pass a series of seats and two pillars in the middle of the platform before you reach the left turn for the exit. This gap is divided into three by two pillars, ideally you should turn into the first gap.

Via the Monument Concourse

The steps to the concourse are now to your left. Turn left and go up a flight of steps. Turn right then turn right again and go up another flight into the concourse.

Turn right and continue to the steps in front of you. These steps are divided by a central rail, you should go down the left-hand set of steps. Go down seven steps, turn left then go down a flight of steps and turn left onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Subway

Continue beyond the front of the train, into a short passage then go down two flights of steps. Turn right then take the turning right and go up two flights of steps onto platform 2. We believe you're near the rear of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

As you go from the front of the train, the section of platform beside the front car is narrower than the rest of the platform. Having reached the wider section of platform, you pass three sets of seats before you reach the right turn for the exit.

As you go from the rear of the train, you leave the steps to the subway behind you, then pass two sets of seats. The first turning left is the entrance, continue to the second turning.

Via the Monument Concourse

Turn away from the platform then turn left and go up a flight of steps. Turn left then go up seven steps into the concourse.

Continue forward, following the left-hand side. The first turning left is the exit, whilst the second is the entrance to platform 1. Turn left, go down a flight of steps, turn right then right again and go down another flight to platform level. Turn right and continue towards the platform. If you find a rail in front of you move left round the end of this and continue onto the platform. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Subway

Go behind the rear of the train, into a short passage then down two flights of steps, turn left then take the turning left and go up two flights of steps onto platform 1. We believe you're near the front of the train.
