Underground Trivia

In case it comes up in a game of trivia or a pub quest, did you know that the escalators down to the Piccadilly line are the second longest in London. They take you down a whopping 54 metres. They did hold first place for many years but were over taken with 60 meter escalators at Angel in Islington as part of the refurbishment in 1992.

I do know this. But I'm not going to lie.... going DOWN these escalators make me very nervous. I get all dizzy! And my ears pop.

Isn't the Piccadilly line the deepest one in London? It always seems to be the hottest in the summer!
