Describe Online


This concourse is located at exit 2 of the mainline station which is reached from Waterloo Road, please visit the Environs page of Waterloo Mainline Station for more details.

The area outside the gates is generally rectangular, with the ticket sales facilities and entrance gates in the left-hand (southwest) section as you enter the station and the exit gates in the right-hand (northeast) section. At the time of our survey, a rope barrier separated these two sections to enforce the desired flow of traffic.

The area inside the gates is also rectangular with the gate line along the south side and the escalators plus the passage to the lift on the north. Again, this area was divided into an entrance and exit section by a rope barrier. The lift emerges in the entrance area of this space.
