London Tube is 160 years old – Mayor congratulates

The London Underground is 160 years old. As the oldest subway in the world, the “Tube”, as it is called by the Londoners, began operating on January 10, 1863 – at that time still as the “Metropolitan Railway” with only seven stations.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan met four Transport for London workers, who together have 160 years of service, in Baker Street – one of the oldest stations – on Tuesday.

The birthday of the “Tube”, which transports millions of Britons from A to B every day, will be celebrated with various activities throughout the year. It starts in January with a kind of scavenger hunt, where participants can learn more about the history of various lines and stations.
