Art on the Underground: the Victoria Line is getting a cultural makeover

Isabelle Aron

There's no denying that the Victoria Line is one of the best Undergound lines out there. The trains come nearly every minute, it's not unbearably hot like the Central Line and it can get you from one side of London to the other a whole lot quicker than certain other lines (we're looking at you, Northern Line). And now it's about to get even better, because TfL has commissioned a new art and music project called Underline to make things a little more cultural for Londoners underground.

It kicks off this month and over the next year you can expect to see photography exhibitions, screenings of short films and a specially commissioned piece of music being performed on platforms by contemporary chamber orchestra London Sinfonietta. So on the rare occasions you do have to wait ages for a tube, you'll at least have something cool to look at, which is more than we can say for the District Line.
