When changing lines, it's faster to head for the exit, go up the escalator, and down the other escalator, than to follow the signed platform changing instrutions.
(Hm, at least changing between the Piccadilly and Jubilee lines, this is certainly true in terms of walking -- most of the trip is on the escalators -- but I'm not sure it is actually faster in terms of time, unless you run up and down the escalators. Maybe I'll get around to timing it, if I'm bored.)
The south ones go out to Green Park itself.
- Piccadilly Line westbound: The far left of the platform is the back of the train and seems to be a good place to get on. It's away from the platform entrance, and today (2002-02-23) at 5:30pm when most of the train was packed solid, the last carriage had spare seats even after I and a few others got on. It sometimes looks as though the front of the platform would be a better bet, in terms of where people tend to congregate on the platform, but I've never seen the front of the train less than packed upon arrival.
- Public toilets
- There are some just inside one of the south exits. They don't cost any money and are therefore fairly scummy.
