That lovely yellow circle on the Tube map looks awfully convenient to  
get around central London, but don't be tempted. What with "passenger  
incidents", broken-down trains, lack of staff, signal failures, and  
whatnot, I'd be astonished if you even get to *see* a Circle Line  
train at rush hour.

If you still persist in trying to catch one, I've got some goose  
grease and a shoe horn which will aid you in boarding. I don't need it  
now I'm CFT-enabled and don't need to go to Canary Wharf.

I *strongly* suggest you look for a different route. TfL's route  
planner comes up with sensible routings once you disable busses. (When  
enabled, it seems to prefer to route people via bus where possible,  
presumably for traffic engineering or revenue maximisation reasons.)
