About

A pioneering patron of poster art, London Underground has developed a worldwide reputation for commissioning striking poster designs.

This exhibition brings together 150 of the most iconic designs since the Tube's first graphic poster commission in 1908. Visitors are invited to vote for their favourites and the most popular poster will be revealed at the end of the exhibition.

Well-known posters, including Keeps London Going by surrealist photographer Man Ray, are being featured alongside lesser-known gems.

There's also a rare chance to view letter-press posters from the late 19th century.

The exhibition is part of a series of celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of London Underground, the oldest subway in the world.
