It’s official! London’s favourite tube station is…

That’s right, as much as we all love to bang on about how great things were in the good old days – vinyl jukeboxes, musty bookshops, buildings full of asbestos – Londoners have gone and voted the industro-futuristic, spaceport-esque Westminster tube station its favourite in all of London.

The slick and silver look of the Jubilee line took second place, too, with Canary Wharf coming in second ahead of the similarly shiny King’s Cross St Pancras in third.

Another popular choice was Oval, which finished fourth and was  praised by voters for its classical music, friendly staff, pot plants and in-station book swap. Not bad for a relatively low-traffic, non-interchange station in zone 2.

At the arse end of proceedings, Bank proved to be the least popular, with fellow commuter crush-points Elephant & Castle and Oxford Circus not far behind.

The moral of the story? Shiny and new beats old and characterful, as long as we can basically have the place to ourselves.
