More people are using the tube than ever before

Isabelle Aron

If you've felt like the tube has been particularly crowded lately, then you're not imagining things. TfL has announced that the tube is the busiest it's ever been, with a record 28.614 million journeys taken in the last week of October. And in other record-breaking news, October 9 was the busiest day ever on the tube, with a whopping 4.753 million journeys. No wonder you keep finding yourself being squashed uncomfortably against the door and crouched under someone's dubious-smelling armpit. And it's only going to get busier as TfL expects both the daily and weekly records to be broken again before the end of 2015. Good luck getting a seat out there!

You might not be able to get a seat, but can you name the four London landmarks in the tube seat pattern?

And if it all gets too much, ditch the tube and use TfL's walking tube map instead.
