FIND THE PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE
If you enter the station from Great Western Road, via the escalators, the ticket sales/assistance window is at the right-hand end of the far wall of the booking hall.
If you enter from the forecourt, turn left and find the ticket sales/assistance window on your left, beyond the door to the Station Supervisor's office.
The station is open between 6:30 am and 11:20 pm.
Holders of concessionary cards (disabled and over 60) are required to buy either a 90P single or £1.30 return concession ticket, whilst blind people with passes are encouraged to collect a free ticket from the sales window. The free tickets are single journey tickets which operate the automatic gates.
As you leave the ticket sales window, turn right. The gate line is in front of you with the two automatic entrances at the left-hand end and the manual gate to your right of these. Go through the gates and continue forward, either down the left-hand escalator or the two flights of central steps. There's corduroy tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
Follow the left-hand wall, wich turns left then left again, before you go down a flight of steps onto the platform. There's corduroy tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
This is an island platform with tactile paving 50 cm from each edge. The outer circle is to your left, you're near the rear of the train, whilst the inner is to your right, you're near the front.
