Info needed re tube station in London

Jump to last reply

Specifically I need to know about the High Street Kensington station.

I need to know how many steps there are in the staircase.

Really I need other information that will help to assess how manageable the station is for a person who is ambulatory but disabled.

Also someone somewhere mentioned that in changing at Earl's Court, it is necessary to go up a short flight of stairs. How "short" is that flight?

In 2004, I got a book from one of the tube stations that gave detailed information about each one of the stations. It told how many feet it was from the entrance to the barrier, how many steps in each staircase, how many flights of stairs, etc. That allowed the individual to judge whether a particular station was accessible for them.

Is something like that available online?

I have been to the Transport for London site and downloaded their two guides, "Avoiding Stairs" and "Step-Free". Neither has the information I need.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Like if you remember using the stairs at Earls Court and think there are only four or five; or, really, anything!
