Love it or loathe it, the Tube is the world's oldest underground system, frequented daily by a staggering 3 million passengers. It has spawned classic phrases like 'Mind the Gap', has carried the rich and famous from Tony Blair to Geri Halliwell and has its own unwritten set of rules of behaviour and protocol. A refuge for all manner of wildlife from rats and pigeons to drunks and backpacking tourists, it still has a unique and special character, known most intimately to London's daily commuter crush. From bizarre drivers' announcements, the new relaxed rules for buskers and timetables that exist only in the imagination, this book unearths the secrets, the eccentricities, the history and the survival tips of this hot, overcrowded and mysterious subterranean world.
