London Tube Walking Project

Welcome to the London Tube Walking Project. This was a project of mine that took place from December 2007 to May 2008 with the aim of walking between all the stations on the London Underground – above ground.

After 378 miles of walking I completed this challenge on the 12th May 2008, becoming the first person to walk between all the stations on the London Underground, and also the first person to walk the lengths of all the tube lines from end to end.

The front end of this site was previously the blog, which was updated with each days walking. Now that the walk is over I’ve added this front page to help you navigate around the site.

There are a number of other pages of interest. On the FAQ page you will find answers to any questions you may have about this project. The merged tube walking map shows you all my walking routes merged together on one map. On the Tube Walking Maps section you can find maps for each individual tube walk. And on the Walking Log page you can find all the walking sections listed in order with details about the walk lengths in time and distance.

The individual blog entries for my walking are shown below in the order that I did the walks.
