The Hammersmith and City Line is a line of the London Underground, coloured salmon pink on the Tube map, running between Hammersmith and Barking. Formerly part of the Metropolitan Line, it is the oldest underground railway in the world, as it includes the first part of the London Underground, the section between Paddington and Farringdon, which opened on January 10, 1863. It ranks 10th out of the 12 lines in passenger numbers.
The oldest of them all, the first underground line. The Metropolitan Line is part of the London Underground, coloured violet on the Tube map. It was the first underground railway (or subway) in the world, opening on January 10, 1863 (however, parts of that initial section are no longer served by the Metropolitan Line, but by the Hammersmith & City, District and Circle lines). The main line runs from Aldgate in the City of London to Amersham, with branch lines to Uxbridge, Watford and Chesham. For the initial section of the Line the rails are in tunnel for much of the way; beyond Baker Street, at Finchley Road the Line runs in the open.
The first driverless tube service. Victoria is London's busiest station. The Victoria Line is a line of the London Underground, coloured light blue on the Tube map. It is a deep-level line running from the south-west to the north-east of London. Construction began in 1962 and continued until 1970. A test tunnel from Tottenham to Manor House under Seven Sisters Road had been constructed from 1959 onwards and this was later integrated into the running tunnels. Trains run every 2 - 2.5 minutes during the peak periods. In normal service, all trains run from Brixton to Seven Sisters, with approximately 2 out of 3 trains running to Walthamstow Central.
The first electric railway in the world and first line to go south of the Thames. The Northern Line is a deep-level tube line of the London Underground, coloured black on the Tube map. It is the busiest line on the Underground network with 206,734,000 passengers a year. It has two routes through Central London and two to the north making it one of the more complicated lines on the system. Despite its name, it is the Underground line that extends farthest south.
Also known as 'The Drain' this line was owned by British Rail until the mid eighties. The Waterloo & City Line is a short underground railway line in London, which formally opened on 11 July 1898. It has only two stations, Waterloo and Bank (formerly called "City", and still within the City of London, hence the name). Between its stations, the line passes under the River Thames.
Bus Route: Crystal Palace, Upper Norwood, Streatham, Tooting Bec, Balham.
Serving Heathrow and the hotels of Gloucester Road, Earls Court and Russell Square this is one of the best known lines in the world. The Piccadilly Line is a line of the London Underground, coloured blue on the Tube map. It is the third busiest line on the Underground. It is mainly a deep-level line running from the north to the west of London via Zone 1, with significant surface running sections in its outer parts.
The newest and youngest line. The Jubilee Line is a line on the London Underground, coloured silver/grey on the Tube map.
The East London Line is a line of the London Underground, coloured orange on the Tube map. It runs north to south in the East End and Docklands areas of London. First opened in 1869 as the East London Railway, it runs under the Thames through the Thames Tunnel, which is the oldest part of the Underground's infrastructure. The line was originally operated by six different railway companies (later reduced to two) but became part of the London Underground in 1933 and came into public ownership in 1948. The line is currently being extended and will be shut down from 22 December 2007 to June 2010 to facilitate the works.
The District line is a line of the London Underground, coloured green on the Tube map. It is a "sub-surface" line, running through the central area in shallow cut-and-cover tunnels. It is the busiest of the sub-surface lines and the fourth busiest overall on the Underground network.
The Circle Line of the London Underground became known as such in 1949, when it was designated separately from its parent lines, the Metropolitan Line and the District Line, although it had been shown on Underground maps since 1947. It can be thought of as a "virtual line", as the Circle Line does not have any stations for its sole use. This is because the Circle Line was created from two previously-existing lines (see history below). The only two sections of track over which the Circle Line operates exclusively are the chords between High Street Kensington and Gloucester Road, and between Tower Hill and Aldgate. The line has interchanges with most of the major London terminals (all but Marylebone, Euston, London Bridge and Waterloo).
