Video: The Tiles Of The Victoria Line

The Victoria line was built in stages from 1969-1977. As stations opened, each platform was given a different tiling motif, located within seat recesses and designed by various artists.

We looked at a couple of these designs in our secrets of the Victoria line. Here, Geoff travels to all 16 stations to look at each tiling pattern and uncover its meaning.

Some are more obvious than others.

Also, note that Geoff IS wearing the same light blue t-shirt he wore in the Victoria line video — just underneath a dark blue shirt.

The shade of blue on the captions is also the appropriate colour.
