Art Deco London (and a tube geek confession!)

Architecture, Events, LondonKate Marsden

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely folks at Blue Crow Media offered to send me a copy of their brand new map - Art Deco London. Now, I'd received their Brutalist one for Christmas (and waxed lyrical about it - see my posts here, here and here) and I was rather excited to get my hands on this one too.

When it arrived I posted a picture to Instagram, and I (sort of) confessed my tube geekyness by saying that I'd like to visit all the Art Deco stations on the Piccadilly Line for fun... and this resulted in lots of comments and people telling me they'd like to come along if I did!

Balham Station - the Northern Line extension from Clapham South to Morden opened in 1926 and is also Art Deco in style...

So, I've subsequently fully disclosed my tube geek status and, along with Laura Howard I will be taking that trip - if any readers would like to join us we'd be really happy about this - the trip is planned for Saturday 9 July and we'll be visiting the following stations:

Boston Manor
Osterley
Hounslow West
Park Royal
Sudbury Town
Sudbury Hill
Rayners Lane
Eastcote

We also plan to take in the Hoover Building and the Zoroastrian Centre.

If you'd like to join us please email me kate@madebymrsm.co.uk and I'll send you details of location and time once we've got this organised.

The map also reminded me that the southern end of the Northern Line (where I used to live) is Art Deco (so I'm planning to walk from Clapham South to Morden at some point), but there's so much more in it than tube stations! I'll be sharing my adventures out and about with it here and on Instagram.

Art Deco London Map is published by Blue Crow Media and available now - I recevied my copy free of charge.
