FIND A PLATFORM FROM THE ENTRANCE
There is only one entrance to this station, that is via the entrance concourse which is off the end of the path from Tower Gateway and immediately to your left at the top of the steps from the subway leading from the Tower. The other concourse, which lies northeast of the entrance and at a slightly higher level (up nine steps) is exit only.
As you enter the concourse, down three steps, the ticket sales facilities are in front of you and the gate line to your right of these. There's a Wide Aisle Gate (entrance) at the left-hand end of the gate line.
Go through the gates, note that the right-hand gates are exits. You're now on the bridge over the tracks with the steps to the westbound, platforms 1 - 2 in front of you or slightly left and those to the eastbound, platform 3, to your right.
Continue, down two flights of steps, to platform level. Platform 1, District Line, is to your left, platform 2, Circle Line, to your right. You're beside the front half of the train.
Turn right, continue down a flight of steps then turn left and go down another flight to platform level. Turn left onto the platform, you're beside the rear half of the train.
