Londoners have ranked tube stations in order of commuter hellishness

Danielle Goldstein

Londoners put up with a lot when it comes to public transport. The overground is down somewhere every weekend, the Victoria line is packing up shop between Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central for the summer and we haven't had the Central line at Tottenham Court Road since the dawn of 2015. Sigh. We're about as irritated as the folks who voted Kensal Rise the most infuriating station to commute to and from in London in Easy Roommate's recent survey.

In total 1,500 tube-riding Londoners ranked their regular stations on a scale of one to ten – or ahhh to arrrgh – and the results have been compiled on a snazzy Easy Tube Journeys mini-site. The flat/flat-mate-finding company have listed the best and worst places to reside in the capital based on travel and rent prices. North Ealing came top of the list, with rent averaging £500 per month, and Kensal Rise came last at number 297, with rent prices around £561 per month.

Dalston Junction was voted third hellish, whilst Anerley and Rotherhithe came joint third easiest, and North Acton, Old Street, Hackney Central and Blackfriars made middle ground. See where your stomping ground ranked: Easy Tube Journeys.

Forget the commute, here are the five worst commuters.
