Reader and photoblogger Tanya Nagar reckons that this elevator in the South Bank Centre is the finest in London. Sound effects by Martin Creed intone the rise and fall, before calling out the floor number in a slightly silly voice. Even without the sound installation, the passing glimpses into each floor are nothing less than vertical-travel-as-artform. And watch to the end for a comedy running man.

Is there a better elevator experience in London? Tell us below or, better yet, send us a video and help turn this into yet another ill-advised series.
