Discover London Underground’s Hidden Labyrinths with the London Sightseeing Taxi Tours

Picture this: you’re standing at the edge of London’s bustling underground platform, a symphony of sound whirling around you. You hear the echo of a train whistling in the distance, the christmas-cracker-pop of suitcase wheels across the tiled floor, and, amongst the rush, a labyrinth waits, hiding in plain sight, ready to be discovered.

A labyrinth at each of the 270 tube stations – sounds like a dollop of daydreaming sugar on top of an urban legend, doesn’t it? Yet, this is the reality of London’s underground system, thanks to artist Mark Wallinger. So, if you’re seeking an alternative way to explore the heartbeat of the city, London Sightseeing Taxi Tours is ready to introduce you to the unexpected marvels of London’s iconic infrastructure: the London Underground Labyrinths.

The Conception of the Labyrinths

In the 2000s, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the London Tube, Wallinger was commissioned to create an artistic tribute, keeping the spirit of London at its core. His innovative vision led to the conception of 270 unique labyrinths, each exclusively designed and embedded with meaning, spread across the city’s underground stations.

These intricate labyrinths, deep in symbolism and high in design finesse, rarely catch the eyes of fast-paced commuters or even the most enthusiastic tourists. However, they offer a fascinating narrative of the city’s atmospheric underground system and the complexity of our urban existence.

Throughout history, labyrinths have been known to symbolize life’s voyage. Each labyrinth in London’s underground stations spells a different tale, either highlighting the city’s ancient tales or reflecting modern metropolitan narratives.
