As much as we love the London Underground, travelling on the Tube often creates many commuter cries of frustration. The trains can be swelteringly hot, there are always engineering works on the line you need and don’t even get us started on signal failures. And it seems that the actual stations get on travellers’ nerves as well. According to a recent YouGov survey, Bank Station gets your goat the most and has been voted the worst station in London. It’s easy to see why – changing lines there can often feel like the Crystal Maze but without the promise of metallic floating money or the sweet sounds of Richard O’Brien’s harmonica.
But surely we love some stations, right? Correcto. The poll also discovered that our fave stations are… drumroll… Canary Wharf, London Bridge, Baker Street and Charing Cross (really?!)! It seems that people clearly like stations that provide a newer, brighter and more sanitized side to London Underground. Many of Londoners’ favourite stations are on the Jubilee Line and let’s be honest, the trains stopping at the exact point of the sliding doors is reason enough to like any station.
