I quite like Angel tube station, that may sound strange, but some tube stations are quite far from the shops, and this one is right on the high street! It's great. They always have some sort of quirky sign on the white board as you enter the gates and they have some weird sculpture thing too (I'll take a photo next time).

I really enjoy this tube station. But of course, I love a good escalator ride.

One of the nicer stations around London town!more
