The tube interchange from your nightmares in 33 Instagram photos

Commute on the Underground regularly enough, and it’s only a matter of time until your dreams take you to the nightmare of the Infinite Interchange – the  Kafkaesque construction of your subconscious, where changing onto the  Piccadilly Line (possibly in order to get to an important meeting, or save a loved one) becomes an endless labyrinth of TfL-branded torment. Good times.

We thought we’d recreate the experience using some Instagram photos people sent us using the #timeoutlondon hashtag. Enjoy! (Because you’ll never, ever be able to leave.)

I have to get to this meeting.

Oh no, the number 8. Not the number 8.

This doesn’t even look like the Jubilee line.

Wait, what is the line I’m trying to get to?

‘Follow us. It’s all changed since last time.’

‘This is the way out!’ ‘I don’t want the way out.” “Everyone wants a way out.’

Haven’t I already been to that meeting anyway?

© hayatakh

Am I back at school?

I think I’m back at school.

‘We should get a move on.’

Oh.

It’s safer down here anyway.

Too hot.

Too cold.

Just right?

‘We have to leave because there’s wasps on the trains again.’

© m0fro

Maybe this will do.

© amandact

The escalators aren’t working are they? Oh, they are.

‘There’s going to be a big problem down here.’

© ari55

‘The last train has departed the station.’

© ayonii

Never mind.
