THE UNDERGROUND CONCOURSE

Describe Online

Overview

This is the main concourse within the Underground station, being reached via escalators from the mainline concourse.

From here, steps lead to the Waterloo & City Line, whilst escalators lead to the intermediate level concourse and passage 1, towards the Jubilee Line.

This is an irregular shaped space with the leg leading northwest from the foot of the escalators from the mainline concourse and the cross piece running along the gate line which, in turn, is across the top of the two sets of escalators to the intermediate level.

The gate line is divided into three sections:

Beyond the southwest end of the gate line is a series of gates to the former Eurostar section which is out of use.
