How far do you really have to walk in London’s Underground?

Just how far do you have to walk on London’s Underground? A new map reveals how the distances between stations measure up, and it shows that if you thought you were using the Tube to cover some ground, you may need to walk a little more than you thought. The map, called Walk the Tube, was created by

UK charity London TravelWatch uses Transport for London (TfL) data on walking distances between stations to show how much ground travelers can cover by walking from one station to another.

Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan Lines

It may not seem like a long walk, but according to London‘s Underground ‘walk, the Tube’ map created by Transport for London, traveling from Hammersmith to Northfields station on the Circle or District Lines will take 40 minutes.

And that’s just in one direction! With 4 Underground lines intersecting at Hammersmith, it can be hard to remember which line is fastest and easiest. The Metropolitan Line is always a good option as its route takes in attractions such as the Natural History Museum, The Royal Albert Hall, and Kew Gardens.

Bakerloo, Northern, Piccadilly, and Victoria Lines

A map that plots the actual walking distances between stations on London’s Underground has been created. The design was unveiled in 2010 and is intended to make the complex network of routes more transparent. It was created by Transport for London’s Underground mapping team and data visualization specialist Mike Hall. The map shows that Bakerloo, Northern, Piccadilly, and Victoria Lines have the longest average walks more than 700 meters to reach adjacent stops.

The Central Line has average walking distances of more than 600 meters, while some stations on other lines are as close as 200 meters apart. The new map was created to show passengers what they could expect when they travel around London’s Underground by tube.

Transport for London’s Underground came up with a ‘Tube Challenge’ design, which was then given over to visualization experts at Mike Hall and Associates. The team started by creating a model of all 270 tube stations within one kilometer of each other and their connecting lines, before working out how far each pair were apart.

Central Line

London’s Underground, more often referred to as the Tube, consists of 12 different lines which all converge in Zone 1. The Central Line is one of the busiest lines, running from North to South. But how long does it take to walk the length of this line? The answer might surprise you…

Walking from one end of a line to another can be difficult on a good day, never mind when a strike or engineering works causes delays. Even so, it’s useful to know how long your journey might take and not just by looking at timetables. As part of a new study, Transport for London has released an interactive ‘walk the Tube’ map which reveals all. Based on

The data was taken from a distance-measuring tool known as an accelerometer. It works using tiny vibrations of your smartphone or tablet and has been used by Transport for London’s Underground before to map travel times on various modes of transport.

This new research uses accelerometers placed in people’s pockets who walked along every one of London’s Underground 270 Tube stations over three days last summer. In total, they walked more than 42 miles (68km) and spent over 7 hours walking around central London as part of studies by academics at UCL and University College.

Jubilee Line

When people think of London’s Underground, they might have in mind that it’s mostly a network of underground tunnels. But the reality is, the Tube system is comprised of trains that run in between overground rail lines and tunnels.

Due to these lines running at different levels, some stations require climbing quite a few stairs to reach them. In extreme cases, this can mean walking for up to seven minutes just to get from one stop to another on the Jubilee Line!

The average journey on a Tube train takes only nine minutes. That means an average trip, from one end of a line to another, involves transferring lines and walking through five stations.

One way around having to use stairs is being able to access platforms without needing to go up or down any stairs. Good examples of these are Pimlico station on London’s Underground Overground, which has wheelchair-accessible platforms at street level as well as normal ones that are underground; and Swiss Cottage station on

Useful Information

A clever map published in the London Evening Standard shows the real distance between stations on the Underground. The map uses a street map overlay to show how many steps are required for commuters to walk from one station to another. In some cases, commuters have up to 400 meters or 800 meters to walk from one station entrance to another,

considerably more than what is shown on Google Maps. The map shows not only individual journeys but also possible routes that commuters could take. Public transport experts will likely be keen on this new way of seeing the city’s famously crowded Tube network and well worth a look before venturing out into town this summer.

The map reveals that there are only three stations where commuters can walk from one entrance of a station directly into another. They are Green Park, Victoria, and Liverpool Street.

Other stations may be closer than they seem due to exits being in different locations, or stations having several entrances from surrounding streets. For example, at Bank/Monument Tube station, commuters will find themselves just meters apart as they walk along Monument Street but there is a significant distance between Bank and Monument Stations on Cannon Street.
