Sure, the tube is great and everything, but sometimes all those stops to 'regulate the service' and the lack of any natural light can grind you down a bit. If you've ever wondered whether it would be quicker to walk – or at least get off a stop early – the folks at TfL have released a shiny new version of the official walking tube map showing the average walking times for each station. There are loads of stations in Zone 1 that are less than a ten minute walk away from each other, so a short stroll could save you the aggro of going underground on a sweaty tube carriage. Some of the Overground stops are a bit more spread out – and the Victoria line's quick one-stop journey from Highbury & Islington to King's Cross translates as a not-so-swift 35 minute walk, so if you're in a hurry or feeling lazy, then it might be better to grin and bear it on the tube.
