How Many Entrances And Exits Does A Station Need?

I took a walk round the entrances of the combined Bank and Monument stations, this afternoon.


  1. There are a total of twenty entrances.
  2. Five are double entrances, with a pair of stairs leading to a single entrance tunnel.
  3. Only three are step-free entrances. Two are new; Bloomberg Building and Cannon Street, although the latter is yet to open.
  4. One entrance is currently closed.

This section of the tube map, that was clipped in January 2023, shows which connections at Bank and Monument are step-free.


  1. At Bank, only the Northern Line and the Docklands Light Railway are fully step-free.
  2. At Liverpool Street, only the Elizabeth Line is fully step-free.
  3. At Monument, nothing is shown step free
  4. At Moorgate, nothing is shown fully step free, although the Elizabeth Line is fully step-free, even if it is a bit tortuous.

Let’s hope some of the gaps are filled, when the Bank Station Upgrade is completed.

There is also no full step-free entrance to the Central Line at the Bank Junction.
