FIND A PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE

Describe Online

Overview

There is level access from either entrance to the Ticket Office then lift or stairs access to the platform.

We noted that this is a "keep left" station, there was a Tensa barrier across the Ticket Office which is apparently moved to allow traffic to flow in the preferred direction. Note that the Ticket Office is a small space for the amount of traffic it serves during the Wimbledon Tennis Championship.

There is tactile paving along each edge of the island platform.

From the Entrance

As you face the building, we understand you're expected to go in through the left-hand (South Entrance). Although there are ticket sales machines on the left-hand wall, we found sales windows on the right-hand side, which were closed at the time of our survey.

The gate line is in front of you with a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the left-hand end and the automatic gates to your right of this. The left-hand gates are normally the ones you need, go through the gates.

To the Platform

As you face away from the gate line, the lift is in the far left-hand corner, whilst the steps are to your right of this.

Via the Steps

You go down three flights of steps onto the platform. Platform 2, serving westbound trains towards Wimbledon is to your right, we believe you're near the front of the train. Platform 1, serving eastbound trains towards Earl's Court and beyond is to your left, we believe you're near the rear.

GO TO END

Via the Lift

The call button is to your right of the door and there's a control panel to each side within the lift. Go down to platform level and leave via the other door. You're in a short passage with a barrier to your left and a wall to your right, continue beyond these, onto the platform.

Platform 2, serving westbound trains to Wimbledon is to your right, we believe you're near the front of the train. Platform 1, serving eastbound trains towards Earl's Court and beyond is to your left, we believe you're near the rear.
