Conveniently there is mobile phone reception on the platforms. The reason I made this page is because when I first used this station I was confused by the signs that pointed me to the right platforms for the Circle and Metropolitan lines, but completely failed to mention the Hammersmith & City one. This is an oversight, just follow the signs. It's all the same platforms.


A few steps connect the southbound Thameslink with the westbound tube platform. Other interchanges involve a staircase.

Where To Alight

This is because Metropolitan line trains are longer than the others.
