Video: Which 4 London Landmarks Feature In The Tube Moquette?

On certain tube lines, you'll have seen the red, blue and white pattern on the moquette seats. You've probably been able to make out two or three of the London landmarks these patterns represent, but can you name all four?

The fabric was designed by tiny London studio Wallace Sewell, who fought off stiff competition from over 200 other companies, before being picked by TfL in 2010. They also designed the Overground moquette. You can see more of their work on Instagram.

Isn't that last one the white tower of The Tower?

For so long, I have starred at the moquette to try and work out the other 2 landmarks. I didn't notice Elizabeth Tower and I had always thought that the bottom of the tower's design on the moquette was meant to be the bow of a ship: either Cutty Sark or HMS Belfast.

I got London Eye and Elizabaeth Tower.

Geoff if you see this... Was on a train and there was this weird illustration amongst the moquette which said the words self and other, I think. People with circles. It baffled us to what it was saying. Any ideas?
