THE ISLAND PLATFORM

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform running north/south with platform 1, serving eastbound trains towards Earl’s Court and beyond lying west of platform 2 serving westbound trains towards Wimbledon.

The lift and steps to the Ticket Office are at the south end of the platform. There’s tactile paving along each edge of the platform.

Note that the south section of the platform, which is under cover is concrete whilst there’s Astro Turf, or similar material, on the open section of the platform.

To Reach

The platform can be reached via lift or steps from the Ticket Office.

Via the Steps

You go down three times ten steps, going north to platform level. There’s tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.

Via the Lift

The call button is to your right of the door. Go down to platform level and leave via the other door. You're in a short passage with a rail to your left and the wall under the steps to your right. Continue beyond these, onto the platform.
