The Kid Should See This

Deeper Underground: Walk the London Tube’s pedestrian tunnels

The infinite tunnels pull us in with their symmetry. The ceiling lights guide our eyes to the horizon. The tiles and posters form patterns that please the eye. The echoes of rushing crowds, a flickering light, a train zooming by.

Walk through the world famous pedestrian tunnels and tube platforms of the London Underground in Deeper Underground, a film by Guus ter Beek and Tayfun Sarier.
