Tube Stop Tuesday: A Summary
Last Tuesday I posted my tenth post in my Tube Stop Tuesday series. Where has the time gone?! It only seems like last month I was wandering around Greenwich capturing my shots for my first tube stop post, Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich. It all started around the end of November last year and I intend to cover many more popular areas in London. When I have finished the Tube Stop Tuesday series I plan on turning it into a book, or creating a coffee table styled book with all of my images from the city.
I decided that for every ten tube stop posts I do, I will write a summary so my new followers can keep fully up to date with this series.
So, where in London have I taken you so far? Click on the titles to be taken to the post.
I started off in Greenwich as this is my favourite place in London. It’s a quirky and historic area with plenty to see and do from museums, the market, and of course my favourite place ever, Greenwich Park.
This area, like most areas in zone one of London, is a popular tourist spot. This is mostly because it is close to the famous Tower Bridge. There is so much to do in this area including seeing the view from The Shard and visiting Borough Market, the oldest food market in the UK.
Located on the Piccadilly Line in zone one, Winter Wonderland is open every Christmas and is located in the beautiful Hyde Park. They just celebrated their 10 year anniversary and have featured one of my photos in their anniversary gallery!
Covent Garden is my favourite place to meet friends in the city because of its huge variety of restaurants and bars.
Waterloo is a very popular and busy station with access to several tube lines and overground trains going into Kent and Surrey. This is the station I get the train to when going into central London. It is close to the London Eye and Southbank.
Charing Cross is close to one of my favourite spots in London, Trafalgar Square. One of the entrances/exits is right next to Trafalgar Square. From here you can easily walk to other locations such as Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and Buckingham Palace. If you find yourself near Charing Cross station I would recommend giving the National Portrait Gallery a visit. It is full of classic paintings by famous artists and is free to enter!
I see this place as the New York City of London with it’s tall, modern buildings and big city feel. It is surrounded by the River Thames so you will find plenty of places to enjoy the view of London! There are also many great bars and restaurants here. Recently I enjoyed seeing the Winter Lights in Canary Wharf.
Westminster is another very busy area for tourists in zone one of London. Big Ben is actually the most visited landmark in London. There is so much to see in Westminster, from the Houses of Parliament to many different monuments and memorials. The architecture around here is stunning.
located in zone two of London on the Jubilee line, Canada Water is quite close to Canary Wharf and whilst there isn’t a great deal for tourists to see, I did find a lovely spot on a hill which offered a fantastic view of London’s beautiful skyline. Check out this post to see more of this view.
Close to other busy stations such as Charing Cross and Temple, Embankment is a great station to travel to if you want to be within walking distance of the London Eye, Westminster, and Trafalgar Square. This station is opposite a great monument known as Cleopatras Needle.
I can’t wait to share more of my posts in this series and I’m looking forward to Spring time so I can capture some lovely blossom filled landscapes in the city!
