Paddington Station – New Western Entrance

I was alerted to the fact that this new entrance to the Paddington station, by one of Ian’s pieces on Ian Visits, so I had to go along and take a look.

It is a simple design, which looks more like an entrance to a museum, school or church, than to an important station.

Unusually, for a station entrance, it takes you right into the retail and food area of the station, but there are several ways to get to the platforms.

  1. This isn’t a new entrance at all. It was historically an access but was closed off some years ago when the food court was built/expanded at which point it became an emergency exit. Subsequent to that I believe it was closed when the Crossrail expansion started, even though it still was indicated as an emergency exit. Quite possibly so if the works had created a corridor for emergencies. Unfortunately I have no clarity on that other than it was still signposted as an emergency exit until recently.
