The UK passport now comes with a (weirdly inaccurate) tube map

Isabelle Aron

It's official - the London tube map has well and truly made it. The government has included the map in the new passport designs - and those guys don't just let in any old riff-raff. The theme of the new passport is 'creative United Kingdom', with tributes to Shakespeare's Globe theatre and the Black Penny stamp, but someone's clearly let their imagination run wild with the tube map because it's littered with errors. The folks over at London SE1 noticed that Southwark station had been left off the map, with the Jubilee line running straight from Waterloo to London Bridge and on a similar note, London Bridge station is on the wrong side of Tooley Street. Queen’s Road Peckham station is also in the wrong place. It's also massively behind the times, showing the old East London line terminating at New Cross Gate, despite the fact that it was made part of the London Overground back in 2010. Come on guys, keep up!

Take a look at this map of London made out of passports.
