South Kensington Station

Another of my favourite tube stations...i love the wrought iron lettering, the oxblood coloured tiles and the arcade of shops in the entrance. There is also a deep sense of history as you walk through, knowing that it is one of the earliest underground stations in the world (the first stage of the station was active in the late 1800s). I also love the fact that the station was known as the gateway to 'Albertopolis' or 'Museumland', thanks to Prince Albert's patronage of the area. The best thing about coming to this station, is knowing that I am only moments away from my favourite museums.
