Tubewalker: The Tube, on Foot

The Route: Overview of the Route

My plan for my tubewalk was to walk each Tube line, in the order in which they were opened, from end to end and including all sub-branches. If there was an obvious chronological direction to take then I followed that, otherwise I tended to walk from west to east and south to north, so the sun and prevailing winds were behind me.

Here's a summary of my schedule. I spread things out so I could spend time writing up my experiences in between, so you could squeeze the same walk into a much shorter period if you wanted, but I think it's good to take your time. There's a lot to see out there.
