From Eduardo Paolozzi's Tottenham Court Road mosaics to Mark Wallinger's 270 labyrinths: the tube network is packed with works by some of the world's biggest artists.

On 24 July, TfL is hosting free 90-minute guided art tours of the network, taking in many of these masterpieces.

Art: everywhere you look on the underground

Tours start at St James's Park station at 11pm, 1pm and 3pm, finishing at Edgware Road station. Pre-booking is essential. For tickets email art@tube.tfl.gov.uk

The tours coincide with the launch of the Art Tube Map, the first comprehensive guide to art works on the underground. Keep your eyes peeled for copies in all zone 1 stations.
