BUY MY TICKET
If you intend to be a regular traveller on London Transport, We suggest you obtain an Oyster card, this is cheaper and easier to use, visit www.tfl.gov.uk/oyster for more details. I've even arranged for my card to be topped up automatically when the balance falls below a set level, so you don't even have to worry about how much money you have in it!
There are card readers in each Underground station and on the buses. These are a round attachment to the automatic and manual gates - you simply place the card (in its wallet) over the reader and hear a suitable beep whilst the gate opens for you. You must, however, remember to "swipe" your card at your destination as well, otherwise you'll be charged the maximum fare.
Whilst there are normally two kinds of ticket machines - fast ticket and ordinary self service - these are inaccessible to blind/vision impaired people, so we suggest you go to the sales windows. Here, you could not only buy a ticket for your journey, but could get an Oyster card, as mentioned above!
The ticket sales windows are on the northwest wall of the concourse.
You either continue forward from exit 1, or turn left at the foot of the steps from exit 2. Continue up the four steps into the concourse and follow the right-hand side, past the gate line, then locate the ticket sales windows, behind Tensa barriers, in front of you.
Continue from the foot of the steps to the turning on your left, then go up four steps into the concourse. follow the right-hand side, past the gate line, then locate the ticket sales windows, behind Tensa barriers, in front of you.
Go down the steps, or leave the lift, turn left (about 11 o'clock) and continue to the far side of the concourse, locate the ticket sales windows, behind Tensa barriers, to your left.
Follow the passage into the concourse then follow the left-hand side till you locate the ticket sales windows, behind Tensa barriers to your left.
