This Week In London’s History
Random London Fact Of The Week
A not-altogether-surprising fact is that the Jubilee Line connects with every other line on the London tube map. (After all, it does cross the river no less than four times as it meanders across London.)
But slightly more surprising, at least to us, is the fact that the Jubilee Line is the only line to achieve this. The first thought that sprung to mind when we heard this was: “But what about the Circle Line? Surely that touches every other line as they enter Zone 1?”
Of course, we were forgetting that there is one line on the tube map that hardly enters Zone 1 at all – namely London Overground. And, in case you think we’re cheating by including this nascent line in the criteria for this piece of trifling trivia, the same applies to its partial predecessor, the East London Line.
London’s Weather This Week
Snow? In April? In London, with its nice warm duvet of pollution? We honestly don’t know when that last happened (and, to be honest, we’re having some difficulty finding out).
Anyway, by all accounts the weather is going to continue to be schizophrenic this week, with the prospect of sunshine, rain, snow, wind and cloud. And the temperatures will be both mild, and freezing (as well as some points in-between). Good luck…
