  1. My favourite one when I was commuting. Paddington to Lancaster Gate. Slightly longer overall to get to st Paul’s but I was able to get on a quieter central line train before the hoardes at Oxford Circus.

  2. No mention of accessing the South Bank from Covent Garden/ Charing Cross (both short walks, both probably quicker than the alternative), No mention of the Greenwich loop (avoid Cutty Sark station altogether by starting your trip with the walk through the foot tunnel from Island Gardens and ending it by walking from the Maritime Museum to Greenwich station). There are dozens more of these kind of alternatives all over the place.
