Walk the London Tube

Harry Beck Underground Map
If you've been to London and traveled on the underground (tube), you know that some of the stops can come up quite quickly. An underground map has been put together to show how many minutes it would take to walk by road from station to station. For example from St. James's Park to Victoria Station takes just 11 walking minutes (probably about half a mile). The underground map originally designed by Harry Beck is neither geographically correct nor does it show distance between stations according to a scale as in other maps, but it is much easier to follow than the original London Underground map.

You can view the map with walking distance here

interesting. I've been to London one time on a high school trip. Never rode the tube. Guess I'll need to put it on the bucket list
