  1. 1. St Pauls is the closest station to the Museum of London as well as St Paul’s Cathedral. 2. The Museum of Childhood at Bethnal Green should be in there. 3. There is a well known classical music venue, Wigmore Hall, near Bond Street. 4. There is some excellent walking territory near the eastern end of the line – Loughton is a good starting point for exploring. 5. Mile End is home to a unique feature – a cross platform underground interchange between a ‘tube’ and a ‘subsurface line’ (The older lines, the District, the Metropolitan and their offshoots were created using ‘cut and cover’ tunnelling and built to the same specifications as mainline railways, while the tube lines are smaller).
