A dreadful place. Who knew making the switch from overground to underground could be such a ball ache?!
The single escalator down from the platform to the jubilee line is so inadequate, that 40 people changing trains seems like 4 million! At rush hour your journey is unpredictably long because there will be 17 fully packed trains going passed before you can finally get through the crush and...more
A relatively new station which is surprisingly poorly designed. Whether they did not realise the large numbers of people who would commute through this or just didn't think about it, I am not sure.
During rush hour, the escalators get heavily congested. The is a large crowed pretty much permanently trying to get down one short escalator. What never ceases to amaze me is that it appears...more

The platforms are wide and spacious which is necessary because any delay on the Jubilee line during rush hour can still result in them becoming very crowded. Indeed, such situations are amongst London's most depressing - standing 20th in line as yet another jam packed train arrives with...more
Don't really have much of a choice since I live here but the long walk to get to the platform is somewhat annoying and the lack of real and fun retail space makes it rather boring. On the flip side, it is a very modern looking site with a glass drum serving as an iconic entrance and allowing for natural light (and hence, your mobile signal) to reach as far deep as the station platform.
