Updated: 9 January 2017
Taking a moment to stop, step back, and look around inside some of London’s Underground stations will reveal a wonderful display of urban design. Recurrent architectural structures, an array of surfaces and an abundance of beautifully designed furniture, lighting and details all make London’s iconic 150-year-old transport system pretty special.


King’s Cross St Pancras Station

Cheating a little here, the impressive King’s Cross St Pancras serves both the Underground and National Rail. However, it is a favourite because of the sheer scale of the structure, both inside and out.


Gloucester Road Station

One of the few stations that use the space for exhibitions.

Notting Hill Gate Station

Marvel at the perfect symmetry, curves and lighting on the District and Circle line platforms.

Westminster Station

Immerse yourself in shapes at scale, a variety of grey materials with different finishes and textures.

Earl’s Court Station

As light floods in at Earl’s Court station, notice the detail of the signage, seating, the clocks and the roofing.

Gants Hill Station

Inspired by the Moscow Metro, if you find yourself in North East London, Zone 4, experience architect Charles Holden’s structure that sits underneath Gants Hill roundabout.

Angel Station

Angel boasts the longest escalator in the Underground, with a stunning 60m long view this escalator is more breathtaking than you could ever imagine.

Canary Wharf Station

You feel a moment of epic-ness when standing on the escalators leaving this Norman Foster creation.

Southwark Station

There are pockets of bold shapes and structure here, and the surface design is to be admired too.

Waterloo Station

One of the busiest stations in London, it’s easy to forget to look around and take in the space as you run for your train or disappear underground to use the tube.
