And so, the end. On Friday night I went to Northfields station, the final stop on the tube map. I celebrated with a few friends in a nearby pub, the Plough.
This means the end of the blog, at least for now - at some point TfL will add more stations and when they do, I’ll be there! In the meantime, I have to find another hobby…
At the time of writing I have 174 followers on this blog. I never imagined it would be so popular - thank you for following and I hope you’ve found it interesting!
Bye for now,
And so, to my penultimate station. Uxbridge is at the end of the Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines, and was the last station I had to tick off on the Metropolitan Line.
Later that day I went to see The Merchant of Venice at the Lost Theatre in south London, a trip that necessitated getting off at Stockwell station, and allowed me to complete the Victoria and Northern lines in one fell swoop.
On Saturday I went up to north London and got off at Tottenham Hale station. I decided to go to the nearby Bruce Castle Museum. I love small local museums.
Later that day I went to the CLF Art Cafe in Peckham to see a play. In order to get there I got off at Queens Road Peckham and walked down Peckham High Street before turning into Rye Lane.
This was the last Overground station I had to visit.
At the weekend I got off at Imperial Wharf to have a walk down the King’s Road. I passed the Chelsea Theatre during my travels. I had originally planned to visit this station prior to my theatre visit next week, but this section of the Overground will be closed then, so I had to adjust my plans.
Later that day I got off at Highgate station to attend a performance at the nearby Jackson’s Lane Theatre. I had originally planned to go to the famous cemetery, but apparently Archway is the closer station, so I will leave that for another time.
After visiting the museum, I walked to Blackhorse Road station. I’d changed trains here before - it’s on both the Victoria line and the Overground network - but I hadn’t actually got on or off at the station prior to this.
On Saturday I got off at Walthamstow Queen’s Road, walking to the William Morris Gallery.
On Wednesday I went to the Broadway Theatre in Catford, and got off at Sydenham to get the bus. I quite liked Sydenham - there wasn’t much there but it seemed nice.
