    Just wondering if anyone can tell me how far it is between the West end of the Elizabeth line train and getting down to the Northern Line platform at Moorgate/Liverpool Street?

    Need to get from Paddington to Borough in the morning. Just trying to plot the fastest way…

    If arriving from the west be at the back of the train.

    If arriving from the east be in the front of the train to avoid having a log walk down the Liverpool St platforms.

    Being in that part of the train (or close to) means you are closer to Moorgate and the Northern Line.

    Thanks – I know what end of the train I need to be at, I’m keener to know just how long the walk is between the two lines. i.e. at Tottenham Court Road if you’re in the right place it’s just a few steps from Elizabeth to Northern, so I could go down to Kennington & come back up.

    However having used one of the new entrances at Bank station recently and worn through a pair of shoes just getting to the Central Line, I’m mindful that the distance between platforms could be significant.

    From memory it’s a very long escalator up to subsurface and then another long escalator down, but not much walking in between. The info must be in one of the planning or station apps

    A trawl on the web suggests from a couple of sources it’s one of the longest interchanges on the ELizabeth line with a lot of walking involved. Think i’ll stick with TCR…

    I need to get to Stansted, I’m thinking of getting the Lizzie line from the east to Liverpool St. Any tips for getting off the train and up to the Stansted Express platform quickly would be appreciated. TIA.

    I find the tunnel interchange being quicker than going up and down the escalators but it is still a minimum 6 mins walk

    Fly on a weekend where the crossrail core is closed? Or change at Stratford for a train that goes to Liv St High Level with intelligent selection of booked platforms to minimise walking.

    Make sure you’re at the eastern end of the train when you board, maybe in the second car.

    Once off at Liverpool Street, follow the signs for the station. You will go up two (long) escalators then see some exit barriers on your left – keep walking straight ahead. This will see you merge into the back of the underground station. Head through those barriers, up a few stairs and you’re on the platform concourse in the mainline station.

    I assume you are coming from Abbey Wood direction? Otherwise you might be better off changing at Stratford for Tottenham Hale, then on to Stansted from there.

    Thanks, it’d be Lizzie Line from Canary Wharf.
