Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s break. Now back in London after my holidays, I need to get used to re-adjust and get used to experiencing certain aspects of this city that I had not used or forgotten about during my break. The London tube, which celebrates 150 years today, is one of those aspects.
There are 270 stations on the official map, which makes it hard to get used to when first confronted with the tube map. Nonetheless, the tube map has been the subject of different re-interpretations. Many artists have wanted to contribute with their own version. In fact, there even is a Tube Map Preservation Society and a Tube map challenge!
I have posted a few tube maps that I have come across over time to celebrate the tube. Which one do you like the most?
