The London tube is something special. Even for us as Berliners with our fairly big system of underground trains, the London tube is astonishing.
Long underground tunnels, winding corridors and escalators that go on forever make a ride on the tube a memorable experience.
The Elephant and Castle station is an important transportation hub. Not only for the tube, but also for trains and buses. 17 Million people got on the tube here in 2013.
What’s special about this station is that it doesn’t have any escalators that lead passengers to the surface. Travelers have to use the elevators or the emergency exit with its very narrow winding staircase.
Elephant and Castle was also the stop where we had to get off to get to our apartment. It was a very long way from the platform to the exit so we made a video about it for you.
