London Tube Map

Dear friends, here we are going to offer London Tube Map PDF for all of you. London is the capital of the United Kingdom. Did you know London is also known as the largest city in England and the United Kingdom? There are  9,002,488 in London according to sources.

Its ancient core and financial centre are the City of London which was founded by the Romans as Londinium. The name London has also referred to the municipality around this core since the 19th century. Here in this article, we have provided many important details about London Tube Map which can be very useful for many people.

If you are one of those then read this article very carefully. The Tube map is known as a schematic transport map of the lines, stations and services of the London Underground. It is also called the London Underground map. With equal weight being given to each line it was the first map to show all of the lines. It is also known as the first map which uses a different colour for each line.

London Tube Map PDF 2022

Below, is a rough guide to each of the chosen lost landmarks, with links to further information.

Aldwych Spur (Holborn): One of London’s many lost ‘ghost’ stations, Aldwych closed to passengers in 1994, along with the short branch of track from Holborn. The station opens for occasional tours.

Angel Inn (Angel): The local tube station, wider area and Monopoly property are named after a now-vanished coaching inn, which occupied the busy crossroads site from the late 16th century. The present building did serve as a pub for a time, before being converted to a cafe. Today it’s a Co-op bank, but the neighbouring Wetherspoon pub has appropriated the name The Angel.

Astley’s Circus (Waterloo): The world’s first circus ring was pioneered close to what is now Waterloo Station. Astley’s circus developed over a succession of increasingly impressive buildings during the late 18th century. It continued long after Astley’s death and almost made it to the 20th century.

Other lost buildings nearby include most of those constructed for the 1951 Festival of Britain, and the Lion Brewery, whose decorative felines can still be found on Westminster Bridge and Twickenham stadium.

Astoria (Tottenham Court Road): The much-lamented gig venue was swept away in 2009 to make way for Crossrail. Many other buildings and businesses in the area, including parts of the ‘Tin Pan Alley’ music district, have also been expunged.

Barkers (High Street Kensington): Kensington’s most famous department store lasted from 1870 to 2006. It was founded by John Barker and James Whitehead, who would both become members of parliament. Its the most recent building still stands.

Baynard’s Castle (Blackfriars): A small fortress near Blackfriars, built not long after the Norman Conquest but demolished sometime in the 13th century. The name was later revived in a nearby mansion, used by the House of York during the War of the Roses. It was largely destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, though fragments remained for many years after.

Bedlam (Liverpool Street): St Bethlehem’s Hospital, or Bedlam as it was commonly called, was in medieval times located near what is now Liverpool Street station. It survived the Great Fire but was nevertheless rebuilt in nearby Moorfields in the 1670s. That building, too, is long gone. The hospital moved once again in 1810 to what is now the Imperial War Museum.

Biscuit Town (Bermondsey): Peek Freans’ biscuit factory once dominated the area south of what is now the Bermondsey tube. Known affectionately as Biscuit Town, the complex gave the world the chocolate digestive, garibaldi and bourbon biscuit. It closed in 1989. Many of the buildings remain, converted to office use.

Another nearby ‘lost district’ is Jacob’s Island, a notorious nest of criminals that features in Dickens’s Oliver Twist as a hideout of Bill Sikes. The slum was cleared in the mid-19th century for warehousing.

Bucklersbury House (Mansion House): A sprawling 1950s office complex, recently demolished. The ancient course of the River Walbrook was found beneath, along with many important Roman artefacts. A new headquarters for Bloomberg and a visitor centre showcasing the remains of the Roman Temple of Mithras have now been constructed on the site.

Catch-Me-Who-Can (Euston Square): London’s first passenger railway was just a showpiece, and only went round in circles, but Trevithick’s engine was ahead of its time. His track was on the site of UCL and ran three decades before trains came into nearby Euston station.

Christ Church (Lancaster Gate): This landmark church was largely demolished in 1977, thanks to dry rot. The spire still stands but is cocooned in something brown, skeletal and unspeakable.

Cripplegate (Barbican): A long-lost gateway into the Square Mile, which gave its name to a wider area around what is today the Museum of London. It was bombed to smithereens in the second world war and is now replaced by part of the Barbican estate. The name lives on as a City of London ward, the church of St Giles Without Cripplegate and a minor road.

Diorama (Regent’s Park): The Diorama building still stands (look at the roofline while passing along Park Square East and you’ll see the name still painted onto the Nash Terrace), but its contents are lost. Like the nearby London Colosseum (see below), it housed impressively huge paintings, which would be cleverly illuminated for a paying audience who sat in a rotating auditorium. It opened in 1823 and closed in 1851.

Dust Hill (King’s Cross): King’s Cross is, of course, already named after a lost structure — an unpopular monument to George IV, which stood for just 15 years, from 1830 to 1845. The area has many other lost features, however, including a smallpox hospital, a suspended railway and this delightful mound of dust.

Earl’s Court (Earl’s Court): The name of this tube station remains the same on our map, to reflect the departure of the Earl’s Court exhibition centre. The complex is being demolished to make way for a new housing estate. Many existing homes will also be removed.

Euston Arch (Euston): An imposing entrance piece for Euston station, torn down in 1961 during modernisation works, along with the Great Hall. A campaign to rebuild the arch has received plenty of publicity, though we’re not so sure.

Farriner’s (Monument): The famous bakery of Thomas Farriner (or Faryner) on Pudding Lane, where the Great Fire of London is believed to have started. Not only was this building consumed, but also 80% of the City of London hence, it deserves a mention in our map of Lost London.

Flower Market (Covent Garden): Covent Garden had served as a market for flowers, fruit and vegetables since the 17th century. The logistics of supplying a central London market finally got the better of it, and the produce was carted off to Nine Elms in 1974. Watch Hitchcock’s film Frenzy for a glimpse of the market’s twilight.

Foundling Hospital (Russell Square): A home for abandoned children was opened by Thomas Coram in the fields north of Holborn in 1739. Most of the buildings were demolished in the early 20th century. The legacy lives on, however, with a children’s playground and the nearby Foundling Museum.

Great Exhibition (Hyde Park Corner): The south side of Hyde Park was the original location of the Crystal Palace, built to house a grand exhibition of the wonders of the empire. The remarkable glass building was taken down the following year and rebuilt in Sydenham, giving its name to the wider area.

Another ‘lost’ item at Hyde Park Corner is the monumental sculpture of the Duke of Wellington, which once perched on top of the arch. It was deemed preposterously oversized and was shifted to Aldershot Barracks in 1883, where it remains today.

Great Synagogue (Aldgate): After the return of the Jews to England in the 17th century, a great synagogue was constructed in Duke’s Place near Aldgate. It went through several rebuilds but remained in continuous use until it was destroyed by enemy action in 1941.

Grosvenor Basin (Victoria): Victoria station is built on top of a large canal basin, which was appropriated in 1858. Staff still refer to one area of the station as ‘the beach’, a reference thought to hark back to its watery origins.

Hankey’s Mansions (St James’s Park): Built between 1873 and 1877, Queen Anne’s Mansions (below) was a controversial housing scheme, nicknamed Hankey’s Mansions after developer Henry Hankey. At 12 storeys high, it was the tallest residential block in the country at that time.

Queen Victoria was reportedly miffed as it blocked her view of Westminster from the palace, and its looming presence led to new planning laws limiting tall buildings. It was demolished in 1973 to make way for the even more imposing Home Office building, now the Ministry of Justice.

Heygate (Elephant and Castle): One of London’s most recent lost places is the Heygate Estate. The vast housing area at Elephant and Castle accommodated 3,000 people in imposing concrete blocks built in the 1970s. The whole lot has now been demolished, to be replaced by modern housing (much of it prohibitively expensive) in a development known as Elephant Park.

Hippodrome (Notting Hill Gate): The central swathe of Notting Hill was once occupied by a race course. The Hippodrome lasted from 1837 to 1842. We refer you to Fiona Rule’s excellent book on Notting Hill, Streets of Sin, for the full story.

Hungerford Market (Embankment): A produce market, built in the 17th century on the site of Hungerford House, by the Thames at Charing Cross. The market survived until the 1860s when it was swept away by Charing Cross station and the rail bridge which still bears its name.

Imperial Institute (South Kensington): Imperial College still harbours an impressive domed tower. It used to have three, with additional ornate buildings housing the Imperial Institute (below). All but the one tower was cleared away in the 1950s and 60s to build extensions to Imperial College.

Japanese Village (Knightsbridge): From 1885 to 1887, Londoners flocked to see the Japanese Village at Humphrey’s Hall, Knightsbridge. This featured over 100 actual Japanese people doing actual Japanese things in a not-actual Japanese setting. Imagine. This wonder of the age might have become a permanent fixture, but such was the demand for all things Japanese that the organisers instead decided to tour Berlin.

23-24 Leinster Gardens (Bayswater): Two houses had to be demolished along Leinster Gardens during construction of the what is now the Circle line. The gaping wound in the terrace was patched over with convincing façades, which remain to this day. The peculiar fakery was highlighted in an episode of the BBC’s Sherlock.

Kirby’s Castle (Bethnal Green): A sizeable manor house then asylum in Bethnal Green. It was pulled down in the 1890s and the land is now partly occupied by the library.

Leper Hospital (Green Park): Before St James’s Palace, the most notable building in the Piccadilly area was home to lepers. It was dedicated to St James the Less, hence the name of the later palace and wider area.

Lime trees (Queensway): Kensington Gardens, like so many London parks, was badly affected by the Great Storm of 1987, losing around 200 trees — many of them mature limes.

London Arena (Canary Wharf): The 15,000-capacity London Arena lasted just 25 years before being demolished in 2006. Its site is now occupied by the hula-hoops Baltimore Tower, still under construction at the time of writing.

London Colosseum (Great Portland Street): Not to be confused with the existing London Coliseum theatre, the Colosseum was an impressive domed building to the east of Regent’s Park. It housed Thomas Hornor’s panorama of London, said to be the largest painting in the world. It was demolished in 1874.

Lord’s (Marylebone): The original cricket ground established by Thomas Lord and used by Middlesex Cricket Club occupied land around Dorset Square from 1787 to 1810, when a dispute over rent forced the club to move.

Mappin & Webb (Bank): This distinctive wedge-shaped building could once be found just west of the Bank junction. It was knocked down in the mid-90s to make way for No. 1 Poultry — a divisive building with many detractors and fans. The site had previously been earmarked for a Mies van der Rohe tower, equally contentious.
