  Baker Street Tube station

If you want to see something related to the history of the London Underground, the Transport Museum at Covent Garden is the first adress. But if it is close (like now in early 2007) or you just do not want to pay an entry fee, take a look at Baker Street tube station. On both platforms, there are boards on which the very early history of the London Underground is shown. the text is supplemented by pictures showing the constrcution phase. As Baker street was one of the original stations on the first London Underground line from Paddington to Farringdon, you can get your dose of tube history in an authentic atmosphere and see how the first stations built in a cut and cover method look like. The only thing you need to enter the tube station is a valid ticket :)

Address: Baker Street / Marylebone Road
