DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is an island platform with the District Line platform 1 on the south and the Circle Line platform 2 on the north.

The entrance is towards the west end of the platform, near the front of the train, whilst the exit is towards the rear. We suggest you don't go beyond the exit steps.

There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

To Reach

These platforms can only be reached via the entrance concourse. Go through the gates and continue, down 14 then 14 steps, going west, to platform level. Platform 1, District Line, is to your left, whilst platform 2, Circle Line, is to your right, you're near the front of the train. Note that these steps are nearer platform 1 than platform 2.

To Leave

Although you can leave via the entrance concourse, you're encouraged to leave via the exit steps, towards the rear of the train.

There's tactile paving at the foot of the steps. You go up 16 steps, going east then follow the passage round to the left before going up nine steps, going north. Turn left (west) and go up 12 steps, going west, into the exit concourse. There's tactile paving at the top of these steps.
