Warwick Avenue to Piccadilly Circus Tube Walk

Warwick Avenue to Paddington

On leaving Warwick Avenue I head down the street of the same name towards the Grand Union Canal.

I walk along the canal and then go under the Westway.

Heading down Eastbourne Terrace gets me to Paddington Station.

Paddington to Edgware Road

On the way to Edgware Road I go past the Royal Mail depot and the Metropole Hilton Hotel.

This is the Bakerloo underground line entrance which is located five minutes walk from the Circle/District/H&C Edgware Road station.

Edgware Road to Marylebone

A short journey East along Marylebone Road and Lisson Grove gets me to Marylebone tube station.

Marylebone to Baker Street

On Dorset Square are many well maintained houses.

Here is the West entrance to Baker Street tube station.

Baker Street to Regent’s Park

On Marylebone Road I pass a church and the Royal Academy of Music.

Just inside Regent’s Park Crescent is Regent’s Park station which is the only one I’ve seen so far that doesn’t have the station name anywhere near the entrance.

Regent’s Park to Oxford Circus

On Portland Place is a statue of Field Marshal Sir George Stuart White, a winner of the Victoria Cross.

Just beyond Sir George is a large hole in the ground where builders are constructing an extension to BBC Broadcasting House. The current BBC building is just beyond the hole.

At the crossroads between Regent Street and Oxford Street is the Oxford Circus tube station.

Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus

The most obvious route to Piccadilly Circus is to follow Regent Street going South.

One of the most famous shops on Regent Street is Hamley’s toy shop.

The curve of the street is one of its prominent features.

After going along the curve I reach Piccadilly Circus underground station.
