Baker Street station vintage design

The London Underground not only connects you to amazing things and activities to do in London but is something to explore in itself. ๐Ÿคฉ 

From historic and modern station designs to stations with a fun twist, here are some of our favourites to visit. Check in here regularly as weโ€™ll keep this list updated with new stations and things to do and see. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Iconic and historic ๐Ÿคฉ

Baker Street

If youโ€™re looking for iconic vintage Tube stations, Baker Street has it all!

Step off the Hammersmith & City or Circle line and youโ€™ll be greeted with those beautiful arches ๐Ÿ˜ 

Balham

Designed by Charles Holden, Balham station will brighten up your day (literally)!

Look up and hanging over the stairs to the platforms youโ€™ll see a stunning chandelier ๐Ÿ’ก 

Piccadilly Circus

Those distinctive colourful tiles at Piccadilly Circus canโ€™t be missed!

But itโ€™s also home to a memorial for Frank Pick, the mastermind of many of London Underground designs including the infamous roundel ๐Ÿ™Œ 

Fresh and modern ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Westminster

Surrounded by some of the most famous buildings in London, including Big Ben and the House of Parliament, Westminster station is quite the contrast

The design is a combination of concrete and stainless steel and was voted by Londoners as one of the 10 favourite transport design icons in 2015! ๐Ÿ‘ 

Canary Wharf

The curved canopies over the escalators at the entrance make Canary Wharf one of the most impressive stations to look at!

You’ll also find Jubilee Park situated between the two canopies above the station concourse, providing the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, even just for a moment ๐Ÿ˜

Quirky and fun ๐Ÿคช

Whitechapel

If you thought the Underground should be below the Overground, then Whitechapel station will have you confused ๐Ÿง

Clapham Common

Fun fact: Clapham Common is one of two stations with an island platform, but itโ€™s also one of eight with a deep-level air-raid shelter beneath it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

 

Barking

Weโ€™re barking mad about seeing dogs on the Tube (see what we did there ๐Ÿ˜‰). Whether theyโ€™re at Barking station or anywhere else on the network, we canโ€™t resist a dog pun here and there! 

Cockfosters

If youโ€™ve ever played one of our emoji quizzes, youโ€™ll know everyoneโ€™s favourite answer to any quiz is Cockfosters ๐Ÿ˜‚. Despite having a funny name, it is also a stunning station to visit!
