Your comments and questions

Colin Travelling from Victoria to Marble Arch via Oxford Circus. How do you know if you are going in the right direction and when you change lines, is it clearly posted/are directions clearly signed?

Staff The Central line platforms will be signposted 'westbound' and 'eastbound'. If you're going to Marble Arch then you'll need the westbound one. The LCD board on the platform will also tell you what the last station is on that line. So your one will either say Ealing Broadway or West Ruislip. Either one is okay for Marble Arch.

Mrs Preston When travelling to Waterloo is the train going north or southbound?

Staff Hello Mrs Preston. That train will be going southbound

Mary Are there lifts at Oxford Circus station for wheelchair users?
