An ‘accurate distance’ Tube map


The London Tube map is a design classic, keeping the same look and feel for over eighty years. But now, Transport for London (TfL) has done the unimaginable: it’s released a geographically accurate Tube map.

The current map doesn’t necessarily show the real distance between stations as it’s designed to show the line connections as clearly as possible.

However, thanks to a Freedom of Information request, you can now compare the classic version with a surprisingly elegant ‘spaghetti’ variant.

See the whole map here and tell us what you think of it.
