DIRECTIONS TO EXIT ONE

Aldgate East has exits at both ends of its platforms, so please ensure you head for the correct exit. Please do not simply go out of the first exit that you see.

Please take a little time to locate and read the platform signs that give directions to the exits, or follow these directions.

When you arrive at Aldgate East Station, to reach Exit One; if you have travelled from central London you will need to turn left off the train. If you are coming from the East of London you will need to turn right off the train.

IF YOU ARE GETTING A CAB OR AN UBER

If you are going to travel to the start point by a black cab or an uber it is best to get them to drop you off outside Aldgate Tower (postcode E1 8FA), which is situated at the junction of Whitechapel High Street and Leman Street.

PLEASE BE SURE TO ALLOW SUFFICIENT TIME

If you are coming across London, remember that you will be travelling through the rush hour, so you will need to allow at least 50 minutes journey time. We honestly suggest that the Underground is better.

IF YOU ARE DRIVING

If you are driving to the tour – again please allow plenty of time as you will be driving through the rush hour – then you will need to head for Aldgate Tower (postcode E1 8FA), at the junction of Whitechapel High Street and Leman Street.
