Overview

There is level access between platforms 2 - 6, Metropolitan Line westbound and FCC Bedford services. There are stairs routes between other platforms.

We believe there will be escalator access between platform 1 and the FCC Stevenage service, platforms 9 - 10, when the refurbishment of the escalators is complete.

There is an escalator route from the Northern Line, platforms 7 - 8, to the FCC Stevenage service, platforms 9 - 10, though the reverse route is via the spiral staircase.

All changes, except for the escalator route between platforms 7 - 8 and 9 - 10 are via the east end of platforms, that is at the rear of westbound, or front of eastbound trains.

There is no tactile paving along any platforms in this station.

From Platform 1, Metropolitan Line Eastbound

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. Note that the rear carriage stops beside the narrow section of the platform.

Go beyond the front of the train and continue to the wall or steps in front of you. We understand that customers are asked to use the subway, rather than the bridge from this platform. If you find the upward steps in front of you, move left to locate the downward steps to the subway. Go down a flight of steps.

In the interest of people flow, customers are asked to leave these platforms via the bridge to platform 1. It therefore follows that, having reached this platform, you reach the other platforms via the subway.

If you arrive via a westbound Metropolitan Line train, the doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. For other services, the doors will open on your left for odd numbered platforms, otherwise on the right.

Go beyond the rear of westbound Metropolitan Line trains, or front of other services. move to your right from platforms 2 - 3, straight forward from platforms 4 - 5 and to your left from platform 6, and locate the steps up to the bridge, in front of you.
