I visited Lewisham DLR station in November 2021. It is highly accessible to the street level via lifts.
Lewisham is a modern station at one end of the highly accessible DLR line. It has a public lift from the street to the platform, and the step onto the trains from the platform is slight. This station is recommended as highly accessible for wheelchair users. Use the links below for pictures and more detail.

The National Rail station has level access or lifts to all platforms. It is manned 24 hours a day; and ramps are available for access onto the South Eastern Rail line.

National Rail South Eastern & DLR

Underground lines : Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is a fully accessible railway for people using wheelchairs. All DLR stations have a lift or ramp access to the platforms, with level access onto the trains. All lifts have alarms enabled, which allow you to talk directly with a member of DLR staff should you experience any problems. The gap between the platform edge and the train is 7.5cm wide and the step up or down from the platform to the train is 5cm high. Most wheelchair users find getting on and off smoothest with the largest wheel first.


Level access between street and platform.
