The Bakerloo Line platforms are two escalators down from the mainline station. Note that currently the down escalator is closed for refurbishment, so outside peak hours you have to walk down the fixed stairs; in peak hours the tube station is currently no entry.
- For Baker Street, turn left out of the mainline station and just carry on walking to the end; the station entrance is on your right across the road.
- Note that National Rail tickets valid for a cross London transfer allow you to walk from Marylebone to Baker Street and vice versa as part of your journey (usually you can't leave the Tube at a non-National Rail station).
- For Edgware Road, walk straight ahead out of the concourse, then when you get to the big, busy Marylebone Road, cross over and turn right. In peak hours there is an entrance a couple of hundred metres down the road on this side; at all other times turn left down Old Marylebone Road and then right down Chapel Street.
Just behind the middle of the train in both directions.
