Unfortunately, I suspect it is only cool if you know London and/or the tube map very well! What is the catch?
There is no catch. Except maybe that nobody wants the Tube to go to Croydon.
I think I'd quite like to live on the Picadilly line, easy to get to Dartford international airport for my flights too heh. :-)
Another one to add to your list:Geographic layout of the tube.
Proof that you're better off walking most places in central.
Hey cool, thanks. Also, you're right. I have to laugh when I see people change at Leicester Square to go to Covent Garden. They probably have to do just as much walking through the two respective stations as they would on the street above, if not more.
London Below is fascinating. I've been absolutely fascinated by that sort of thing ever since I read Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. Do you know if there are any books or websites on the subject? I must do a Google search.
I don't know about the rivers or the Post Office railway - about which there might not be too much public information for security reasons. But I do have quite a good book on the disused Underground stations. I can look up the title for you if you like.
That would be cool, thanks!
It is cleverly titled London's Disused Underground Stations by J.E. Connor, ISBN 185414 250 X. In addition to all the historical information it has some lovely photos of the station interiors.
I love the underground part of this city. There are various tours you can take through old sewers (yes, stinky)/abandonded stations etc..
If you ever want to do one, I'd definately be up for it.
Cool, I'd want to do those. This is probably the time of year for it as well. Less smelly, low season and all that.
