The history of London Underground 🚃

Oxford Circus opened in 1900, its safe to say although it’s always been busy, people still find a way to smile.

Before “stand to the right, walk on the left” was introduced

Earl’s Court underground was opened in 1863. 27 years prior to the first underground electric traction train

Hammersmith station is 145 years old. In other words it first opened its doors in September of 1874.

Did you know Aldwych station was initially named The Strand in 1907, it was soon renamed due to the confusion caused.

Then and now. Hampstead is the deepest underground station, it sits 58.5 metres below ground level.
