Accessible London in 2019

Accessible Train stations in London - Stanmore

All the London railway stations :

I visited Stanmore station in July 2019. What an awfully designed station. The TFL brands this as step free from platform to street level. Maybe it is, but it is a horrible route to a subterranean car park, and via a long steep path. Use this station as a last resort. This station is a cop-out by TFL, and they should be ashamed of calling it step-free on their tube map!

This site is built in the remembrance of Andy who spent a considerable part of his life at a hospital near to this station. I hope he never tried to use it in his travels, I bet he did!

I took the steps to get back up to the station entrance, or you can go down the slippery slope to the car park.
