Holborn Station London Reviews


Its the tube, but it could be worse - Sure, it's a tube station so it brings up annoying thoughts of overly crowded, sweaty, uncomfortable commuting. It is also underground and may even harbor some scuttling rodents. Fair enough. But for a tube station, you could do worse than Holborn.
For one thing, the platform walls sport interesting metal panels that evoke some of the more famous collections of the nearby British Museum. Plus, with both the Central and Piccadilly lines, this station is reasonably well connected to the rest of the underground system. It's also pretty commuter friendly in some respects - there are several coffee shops immediately outside the station as well as a Krispy Kreme, and the news agent just in front of the main entrance has a great selection of continental newspapers and magazines.
Also, did you know that those massive escalators at Holborn are the second-longest in the Underground?

Lost Underground Station - Everyday that I take the central line into work and pack myself amongst my London brethren, I wish I was dead.

However recently someone has pointed out to me that there is a whole world of mystery and intrigue in the daily commute and I was delighted to recently discover one of these jewels of the London Underground.

On the central line between Holborn and Tottenham Court Rd is the lost British Museum station.

If you press your face against the glass on the right side of your train carriage you can see it. Right at the beginning they've even got some old posters. Then the old platform and British Museum Station Logo.

Seriously this is so wicked cool and I am working on a way to try and break in there (just kidding, due to terrorism I'd probably be hunted down and shot, either that or even worse- introduced to a fantasy world run by Neil Gaiman).
