What is Tubewalking? The Rules of Tubewalking

In its simplest form, a tubewalk is nothing more than a walk that starts and ends at a Tube station, so all you need to become a tubewalker is a couple of Tube stations, a dose of motivation and some time to kill. You certainly don't need someone like me laying down rules.

These rules enabled me to walk the entire Tube without repeating myself and without missing anything. I also tried to take in as many interesting destinations as I could, because after all, tubewalking is supposed to be fun... and it certainly turned out that way.
