PLATFORM 1, DISTRICT LINE WESTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

The track runs southwest, though the wall veers south as you move away from the rear of the train, with the effect that the platform widens. Beyond the lift from the concourse, the wall retreats east across the foot of the steps from the concourse, before continuing south to the lift to the Jubilee Line platforms. Beyond this lift, the wall continues southwest, then west, behind the escalators to the interchange level. Steps to the interchange level leave to the southwest before the wall turns southwest along the remainder of the platform, near the front of the train.

To Reach

From the concourse, go down 13 then 14 steps, going south into the area at the foot of the steps.
