    When will you get to one of the most remarkable spaces in London – the amazing Escher-like cavity you move through when changing between the Jubilee and the Distrct at Wesminster station.

    And what about Shepherds Bush, the weird, oversized cube with far too much headroom ( but beautiful, nevertheless)

  3. Hi Ian – this is a great blog, really enjoyed the stuff you have spotted. I have been working on something similar here http://blog.everystationinlondon.com – I was hoping to capture every tube station before the celebrations in january 2013 but I’m not quite sure I’m goign to make it. It does appear we have ratehr similar interests though. Well done again on the blog.

    and Holloway – beautiful dark green Art Nouveau (?) tiles, and a noticeboard with a cheer-up-lovies daily drawing done by one of the staff, at least I hope it’s still happening.

    What a terrific web site! I’ve a bit of a soft spot for the London Underground but you have opened my eyes to features in the system that I have never taken proper notice of before. Thanks very much. TfL should sponsor you for this.

    • I’m not sure TfL would approve of all the photos!

  6. Wonderful list. My personal favourite things are the huge spiral staircases. Especially the one at Covent Garden, and as you climb it, the increasingly exhausted tourists peering desperately upwards!
