WHERE IS ALDGATE EAST STATION?

Aldgate East is in zone one of the underground and is on the District (green) and Hammersmith and City (pink) Lines.

To ensure that you do not miss the tour, when planning your journey we suggest you allow 3 minutes for each underground station you will be passing through on your journey to Aldgate East Underground Station and then add a safety net of 10 minutes to allow for any tube delays.

IMPORTANT

Please do not go to Aldgate Station by mistake. This is a totally different station and our tour does not meet there. Make sure that you go to Aldgate East Underground Station.

PLEASE BE SURE TO GO OUT OF THE CORRECT EXIT

DIRECTIONS TO EXIT FOUR

When you arrive at Aldgate East Station, to reach Exit Four you will need turn right off the train, if you are coming from Central London. If you are coming from the East of London you will need to turn left off the train. Having done so, walk along the platform, go up the stairs and through the ticket barrier and Exit Four is the exit on the right.

Please note that Aldgate East Underground Station has exits at both ends of the platforms, so 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.

WHERE ARE THE PLATFORM SIGNS?

When you get off the train you will find signs directing you to Exit Four on the walls all the way along the platforms. Please refer to these signs for directions.

You will also find an Exit guide on the walls at the foot of the steps leading up from the platforms, again please take a few seconds to ensure you are actually going out of the correct exit from the platforms.

We meet on the pavement directly outside Exit Four. If you have come out of the wrong exit please just refer to the photograph below and make your way to this exit.

You will find your guide waiting on the pavement at the top of the stairs directly outside this Exit.

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 the Whitechapel Gallery (77-82 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7QX) and then cross over Whitechapel High Street to Exit Four of the Station.

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 the Whitechapel Art Gallery. However, there is no parking around the station. The best place to park is on Minories, and from there it is a little over five minutes walk to Exit Four of Aldgate East Underground Station where the tour meets.

REMEMBER TO CROSS OVER THE MAIN ROAD TO EXIT FOUR OF ALDGATE EAST UNDERGROUND STATION.
