Underground wunderkind Mark Mason once walked the extent of the tube network on foot, and wrote a great little book about it, ‘Walk The Lines’, which London geeks everywhere should definitely check out.
Now you can join him for an entertaining ninety-minute walk together, covering a stretch of central London tube route with Mark and others. As he explains on his website:
‘On the District Line we’ll learn how long it’s going to take Big Ben to fall over … the Piccadilly Line will reveal why Paul McCartney is the only person allowed to whistle in the Burlington Arcade … while walking the Central Line we’ll discover what Nelson’s coffin is made from.’
You’ll need £8 in (Johnny) cash to join one of Mason’s trivia-enhanced stroll – and the next one is this Sunday May 5, at 2.30pm.
