The escalators to/from the Victoria Line are at the north end of the subway , whilst the steps to/from platform 1, Circle/District Line westbound are at the south. The passages to/from the eastbound Circle/District Line, platform 2, are on the west side, towards the east end of the platform.

From Victoria To Circle/District Lines

The doors open on your right as you face the front of the train.

From the Northbound, go towards the front of the train and enter the central reservation via one of the four passages near the end of the platform.

From the southbound, go towards the rear of the train and enter the central reservation via one of the four passages near the end of the platform.

Turn right (northbound) or left (southbound) and continue to the foot of the escalators. The one on your left is normally the one you need.

From the Top of the Escalator

For the westbound Circle and District Lines, continue to the end of the passage, go up one flight of steps, turn right then go up another flight onto the platform. You're near the rear of the train.

For the eastbound Circle and District Line, turn right and, ideally, take the second passage to your right (the first is entrance only). Go up two flights of steps onto the platform. You're near the front of the train.
