Those curious to know exactly what a "travolator" is can read more here.

Excellent! A friend told me years ago about the Lancaster Gate-Paddington thing but I've never been able to remember which they were.

That Lancaster Gate - Paddington thing is very similar to travelling from Leicester Sq to Covent Garden. Don't do it.


Good video! These all seem like minor truth-stretchings compared to the whopper all over the Olympic Park last year: "Fastest route to central London via West Ham"


I LOVE this..there's many more lies they could have exposed!
