One of the more overlooked stations on the Central Line because it doesn't serve one of the 'shopping stops' on Oxford Street or either Westfield, Lancaster Gate sits between Marble Arch and Bayswater

The Tube station itself is small and the most irritating thing is that it is served by lifts rather than escalators, which can make for large crowds at peak times. The spiral staircase is fine,...more

The Tube station that I use most frequently. Small but good enough. If you take the lift, listen to the recorded announcer; it sounds like they haven't changed it since the 1960s or 70s.

Below ground the platforms...more

This tube station is not too busy, but: No escalators, just lift and stairs. If you want to go down, you might want to use the 78 steps. Upwards I tent to wait for the lift. You can walk from here in about 10 minutes to Paddington Station. Or you just go to Hyde Park across the street.more
