Did you know that. From Stonebridge Park on the Bakerloo Line you can walk to the largest Hindu temple in Europe? From Ealing Broadway on the Central Line you can walk to the oldest film studios in the world? From Stratford on the Central Line you can walk to, and abseil down, Britain's tallest sculpture? London is a city of surprises and variety, over 600 square miles packed full of character. And to really know London you must look beyond the obvious; there are broad vistas and quiet corners, iconic sights and grand boulevards, quaint villages, verdant parks, cobbled alleyways, museums, monuments, markets, theatres, and ancient churches. This book unearths and explores a stupendous range of interesting places, some well known, some less well known, some almost unknown, all of within an easy walk of a Tube station. If you want a day out and you want to do something different then London is your town, the Tube is your means and London by Tube is your guide.
