FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There are two exit routes from this station, one via the lower concourse to street level via the east or middle exit, the other via the Metropolitan Line concourse. As the name suggests, the Metropolitan Line concourse offers the easiest route from platforms 1 - 6, via the bridge, whilst exit from the other platforms is easier via the lower concourse. If you need a bus, however, we recommend you exit via the lower concourse, through the middle or east exits.

Whilst you could go from the lower concourse, via the subway, then via the bridge to street level via the Metropolitan line concourse, this is a very tortuous route for little gain at street level, we will therefore disregard this option.

Note, there is no tactile paving along the edge of any platforms in this station.

The doors will open on your right as you face the front of the train. You need to go into the middle of five passages between the platforms. The two passages near the front of southbound (rear of northbound) trains are entrances, the one at the other end of the platforms is a through passage and the other one is an escalator-only route to platforms 9 - 10.

Go into the passage and take the turning left (southbound) or right (northbound). If you don't find this, you're in the wrong passage. Go up a flight of steps, turn right and follow the passage to the end before turning left towards the escalators. The right-hand escalator is normally the one you need, go up to the lower concourse.
