The escalators are located next to M&S FoodHall. The arches are labelled with ‘Exit to Waterloo Road’.

Boris bikes run by TfL.
You can pick up a bike at many docking stations around central London. Click here for more information regarding how full the docking stations are at our location. Also, you can find information regarding how to hire a Boris bike. There is a nominal daily membership charge, and the bikes are free to use up to 30 minutes before they have to be re-docked. The rental charges increase dramatically after the free period. If you are thinking of going for a longer ride without re-docking continuously the traditional bike hire from shops is a better deal. Check out what we have to offer here.
