Am I being a complete spaz, or does Embankment have two entrances?

EDIT: Yes it does, but I can't remember if it has two barriers or not.

I don't know where the other entrance is, but might I suggest that we meet at the one that looks out onto the river? Will probably be the quieter one, as I have a feeling the other one is the one you use to get up to Charing Cross NR, and so might be busy at that time of day.

EDIT: Wikipedia confirms what I thought. One entrance is on Villiers Street, which leads up the slope to The Strand and Charing X, but i reckon we should go to the one on Victoria Embankment

According to tfl there is only one ticket hall. So I assume there is only set of barriers.

I assume that most of you guys have my mobile number in case there are any problems in finding each other at the start or if you are running slightly late..... If you need my mobile just send me a quick pm.....

I am sorely tempted as (upon investigation) I can get a bed in London for about £9 that night.
I shall let you know tomorrow.
