Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
Opened in 1876, Aldgate is at the eastern end of the Metropolitan line, and also sits on the Circle line. Both the District and Hammersmith & City lines pass very close by, but neither stops at Aldgate. In fact, you can actually see trains on the Hammersmith & City line as they pass Aldgate on their way to Aldgate East.
Answer: Waterloo & City
Bank is the eastern terminus of the 1.5 mile-long Waterloo & City line on the London Underground. It takes just shy of four minutes to complete a journey along the line in either direction. Monument station, on the Circle and District lines, opened in 1884, while Bank followed in 1900.
It wasn't until 1933 that the two stations were linked together and officially became Bank & Monument (though the two are, in some cases, still considered separate, particularly as, for instance, the Central line serves Bank and not Monument).
The station is amongst the busiest on the Tube network in terms of commuter traffic. On the other end, Waterloo is the busiest of them all, clocking over 95 million ins and outs during 2015.
Answer: Hammersmith & City
The Hammersmith & City line is notable for the fact that, since the Circle line extension to Hammersmith in 2009, no stations are unique to it - every station on the H&C line is shared with at least one other line. Starting at Hammersmith, it follows the Circle line around to Baker Street, where the Metropolitan line joins the party too.
The three head around to Liverpool Street with the Circle and Metropolitan lines continuing to Aldgate, while the H&C curves off and joins the District line at Aldgate East.
It then follows it all the way to Barking where it terminates.
Tennis enthusiasts will know to take the District line towards Wimbledon (although seasoned visitors will know to get off at Southfields, which is closer to the main entrance). Wimbledon station itself sits at the end of its branch and connects with the London Trams and National Rail services. What we know as Wimbledon station today was originally sited elsewhere when it opened in 1838, though it wasn't until 1889 that it was connected to what would eventually become the District line on the Underground.
Uxbridge brings an end to parts of the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines, sitting just on the western edge of Greater London. The interior of Uxbridge station is remarkably similar to that of Cockfosters; indeed, both were designed by Charles Holden (amongst his many others).
Originally, District line services ran north from Ealing Broadway to Uxbridge, but 1933 saw this being replaced by the Piccadilly line. Trains heading into London from Uxbridge may call at Hillingdon, Ickenham, Ruislip, Ruislip Manor, Eastcote and Rayners Lane, all of which are on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines; after Rayners Lane, the two lines go their separate ways, reuniting briefly at King's Cross St Pancras.
6. Mill Hill East
Mill Hill East sits at the end of its own branch of the Northern line, just past Finchley Central (the other section of the Northern line continues on to High Barnet). In 2015, it was the least used station on the line, clocking in just over 1.3 million entries and exits over the course of the year.
It was originally part of a proposed plan called the Northern Heights, which would have involved the line extending from Mill Hill East to Edgware, Edgware's branch being extended north to Bushey Heath, and Archway becoming an interchange between several branches of the line connecting to Finsbury Park on the Victoria line and extending northeast to Alexandra Palace.
These plans were scrapped in 1954.
7. Elephant & Castle
Aside from being one of the more obvious answers to the pub quiz question "Name a Tube station with an animal in it", Elephant & Castle is the terminus of the Bakerloo line, and also sits on the Bank branch of the Northern line, just before it and the Charing Cross branch join up again near Kennington. Two different buildings on opposite sides of the eponymous roundabout give access to the two lines - the north entrance retains its original architectural style and goes down to the Bakerloo line, while the southerly Northern line entrance is a more modern looking building by comparison, having been rebuilt several times over the years.
8. Ealing Broadway
Ealing Broadway sits at the end of the 46-mile long Central and 40-mile long District lines, the former branching off between West Acton and North Acton and heading up to West Ruislip. In the other direction, the Central line, as its name suggests, cuts right through the centre of London before branching off again down the line after Leytonstone; this creates a loop of track to the east known as the Hainault loop, while the line also continues north, connecting up with the other end of the loop and running all the way to Epping in Essex (it's a rare feat for a London Underground line to extend outside the Greater London area).
Stratford brings the Jubilee line to an end after its 22 mile run from Stanmore in northwest London. It ranks as one of the busiest stations in London, serving over 60 million commuters during 2015. As well as being a Jubilee line station, Stratford sits on the Central line, the London Overground, the Docklands Light Railway, and TfL Rail.
In the lead-up to and during the London 2012 Olympics, Stratford saw a considerable jump in usage with 20 million more passengers passing in and out in 2011 than in 2010.
Hammersmith is divided into two stations - one which serves the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, and one which serves the District and Piccadilly lines. The original Hammersmith station opened in 1864, though its location was changed four years later.
The extension of the Circle line from Paddington to Hammersmith (which didn't really make it a circle anymore) was completed in 2009, some 125 years after the Circle line was finally joined together to form a loop.
