Assisted Travel:

Assistance navigating through the station and getting on and off trains (by ramp if required) by station staff is available nearly all the time trains are running (See staffing times). There are on train staff able to offer assistance on and off all Southeastern trains from this station. You can now book assistance up to 2 hours before your journey. You can also travel without booking, just make yourself known to staff as far in advance as possible of the train you would like to get - we recommend at least 20 minutes. The meeting point for assisted travel is the office on platform 1 or if on platform 2/3 you can use the Help Point to get the staff's attention.

Outside of Station staffing times, either wait on the platform and get the on train staffs attention or use the Help Points located on the platforms.
