London's Most Beautiful And Ornate Subways

As well as being a way to get from one side of the road to another without coming a cropper under a bus, London's subways often go above and beyond the call of duty. Take a look:

We've covered the Crystal Palace Subway in detail before. It's not currently open to the public, but there is a campaign to get it reopened. Photo: Konstantin Binder
Underneath Blackfriars Road Bridge on South Bank is a pedestrian underpass tiled with images of the creation of the bridge. Photo: markdbaynham
This one isn't particularly ornate, but as one of London's most famous subways, it's worth a mention. It's named after The Clash frontman, who used to busk in the underpass. Find it at the junction of Edgware Road and Westway. Photo: roll the dice
Beautiful may not be the word here, but a stroll through the Leake Street graffiti tunnel underneath Waterloo station is certainly a colourful experience. Photo: Laura MacGregor
We know, we know, it's gone now *sob* but we had to include the colourful Elephant & Castle subway of yesteryear. Photo: Pete
