Metropolitan Line Walk – Day 7
Finchley Road to Baker Street
I leave Finchley Road underground station and walk south past the shops on Finchley Road. Outside a McDonald’s I spot this dog waiting for its owner.
Baker Street to Great Portland Street
Walking along Marylebone Road I pass the old London Planetarium dome – which is no longer in use as a planetarium. It is used for celebrity shows as part of Madame Tussauds instead.
Great Portland Street to Euston Square
There are new offices being built on Euston Road.
Euston Square to King’s Cross St. Pancras
I walk north east on Euston Road passing the British Library.
King’s Cross St. Pancras to Farringdon
On Farringdon Road I pass a Post Office depot and just beyond this is Exmouth Market, mostly selling hot food.
Farringdon to Barbican
To get to Barbican station I head through Cowcross Street and Charterhouse Street.
Barbican to Moorgate
I walk through the Barbican estate. The Barbican proves that is is possible to produce a highly populated concrete estate which is pleasant to walk around.
Moorgate to Liverpool Street
I walk east through Finsbury Circus which is popular with the local city workers.
Liverpool Street to Aldgate
I walk down Bishopsgate passing the construction site for the Heron Tower. When it is finished it will be taller than Tower 42.

I walk south east along Beavis Marks and Duke’s Place, getting a good view of The Gherkin before arriving at Aldgate, my last stop on my Metropolitan line tube walk.
