From Which Entrance?

  From the Main Entrance
From the Tower Entrance

From the Main Entrance

You can reach the upper concourse via escalator, stairs or lift. All these bring you near the near end of the concourse. The gate line is across the far end, with the manual gate at the right-hand end of the gate line as you face the platforms. Of the 16 automatic gates, we found no clear pattern of entrances or exits at the time of our survey.

As you go through the gates, platforms are numbered 1 - 4 from the right, platforms 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 are island platforms.

As you come in through the main entrance, the stairs and escalators are in front of you and the lift is to your left.

Via the Escalator

The escalators are to your right of the stairs and the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. Go up to the upper concourse and continue to the gate line.

GO TO END

Via the Stairs

It's probably easier to go straight up the stairs to your left of the escalators. Go up three flights of steps into the upper concourse and continue to the gate line.

GO TO END

Via the Lift

Go forward a few metres then turn left towards the lift. Note that there's a set of stairs to your right of the lift and that the button to your right of the door is for assistance. The call button for the lift is to your left of the door.

Go up to the upper concourse, leave via the same doors then turn left and continue to the gate line.

GO TO END

From the Tower Entrance

You can follow our route from Tower Hill Station.

From Coopers Row, go up three steps into the concourse. The gate line is in front of you with the manual gate at the left-hand end and the automatic entrances to your right of this. Go through the gates then continue up a flight of steps. Turn right (180 degrees) then go up a flight of steps, into the subway. We suggest you follow the right-hand side as the subway may put you behind the train. The right-hand steps will take you towards the front of the train.

Take the first turning right for platforms 3 - 4, or the second (last) for platforms 1 - 2 and go up two flights of steps onto the platform. In either case, the lower number platform will be to your left.
