From Platform 1, District/Circle Line Westbound

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

As you move away from the rear of the train, the platform widens abruptly then more gradually as you approach the lift from the concourse. Beyond a barrier leading away from the lift, a large open area contains the foot of the steps from the concourse on the near (north) side, the lift to the Jubilee Line in the far left (southwest) corner and the escalators to the interchange level towards the far (southwest) side of this space.

We therefore suggest that you come from the middle, or rear of the train towards the front, so that you can be sure of locating the lift to the concourse, beyond the seats and pillars on your left. If you turn left, just beyond the lift, you'll pass some billboards before you reach the foot of the steps which go up to your left (north).
