Underground, Tubes & Trains, London: 37 reviews and 93 photos
The stretch of line (about four miles in length) between Paddington and Farringdon on the Metropolitan line is the oldest section of Subway / Metro line in the world.
It was built to relieve the chronic congestion of the time (no change there then !) and was intially operated by steam locomotives.
You can still see much of the original grand brickwork - especially at stations like Baker Street.
The famous Picture that I've used perhaps belies that fact that from it's very first day it transported tens of thousands of passengers. I doubt that many travellers kept their clothes in quite the pristine crispness we see in the picture.
Address: Metropolitan line
Directions: Located Throughout the City.
