The nearest underground stations are Aldgate East (0.1 miles), Whitechapel (0.7 miles), Liverpool Street (0.4 miles), and Bethnal Green (1.4 miles).
Shoreditch High Street (0.5 miles) is our nearest overground station and has a lift from the platform to ground level.
Our nearest DLRs are all fully accessible, including Tower Gateway (0.5 miles) and Shadwell (0.9 miles). All DLR stations have lift or ramp access to the platforms and relatively level access to the trains.
Unfortunately none of these underground stations have a lift from platform to ground level, except Liverpool Street. At Liverpool Street, a lift provides step-free access to the eastbound (Metropolitan, Circle, H&C) platform at Liverpool Street station. There is no lift to the westbound platform.

Please note, it’s easy to confuse Aldgate Station and Aldgate East Station. These are two different stations! Also, Toynbee Hall is on Commercial Street, not Commercial Road.
