The Best And Worst Of The Tube

Proving once and for all that one man's heaven is another man's hell... here's a selection of incredible pictures from the underground world that makes up the tube network.

As 1.34bn passengers use the 402km of the network each year, it stands to reason that some of them will be complete idiots; some will be a bit famous (Hello, Benedict! *waves*); some will probably be a bit worse for wear; others will be a bit shattered.

Don't forget: there is in London all that life can afford.

Well done, station geeks. Well done.
