Description

The Bakerloo line is a London Underground line that runs between Harrow & Wealdstone in suburban north-west London and Elephant & Castle in south London, via the West End. Coloured brown on the Tube map, it serves 25 stations, 15 of which are below ground, over 14.4 miles (23.2 km). It runs partly on the surface and partly in deep level tube tunnels.

The line was so named because it goes via Baker Street and Waterloo. Opened between 1906 and 1915, many of its stations retain elements of their design to a common standard, the stations below ground using Art Nouveau decorative tiling and the above-ground stations built in red brick with stone detailing in an Arts & Crafts style. It is the ninth busiest line on the network, carrying over 111 million passengers annually.

It passes some of London's most iconic landmarks including our Wembley Stadium, Paddington Basin, Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and the Golden Jubilee Bridge.

The route is a point to point and can be started from either end.
