History Of The London Underground

One of the factors that makes the London Underground so special is that it is a historic part of London city. It was constructed in 1863 and has stood the test of time throughout its 156-year history. Its first ever journey took place on the 9th January 1863 and by 1884, there were over 800 trains roaming around every day.

The London Underground has continued to grow since it was first built, with more and more trains being regularly added. It has also been improved upon frequently, with Kennington the only city and South London Railway station that remains close to its original condition. This station even features a domed roof.
