London's tunnels: trains, tubes, cars, pedestrians and even boats use them. Here we take a look at some of the city's familiar — and a few of its lesser-known — holes in the ground.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: Andrea Vail, Andrew Smith, Fin Fahey, Gigi, helenoftheways, Javier Ayala, Jon Morris-Smith, Mike Atherton, reiver iron, Richard Watkins LRPS, Scott Baldock, Torsten Reimer.
