Back to blog Transport for London (TfL) has created a Walking Tube Map and it’s the best thing for anyone kick-starting new healthy habits or looking to save money on London Underground tickets. The benefits of walking are huge. It can help reduce the risk of heart disease, improve your mental health, help you sleep better and in some cases walking is more effective than running. The best part is that walking is one of the easiest bits of exercise to fit in to your daily life. Which is why TfL’s Walking Tube Map is so valuable. The Walking Tube Map reveals how long it takes to walk between Tube stops instead of using the Underground. For example, Baker Street to Regent’s Park is just a 10 minute journey. The Tube map itself is infamous for playing with geography and so it can sometimes be surprising to see just how close some stations are to each other. If you’re thinking of fitting more walking in during a commute, just half an hour for 5 days in a week is enough to get the health benefits. This can easily be achieved by getting off a stop or two early and doing the same when you get home. For example if you had to get to Chancery Lane for work every day and travelled from East London, get off at St. Paul’s instead. That’s 14 minutes of walking in the morning and 14 minutes when you travelled in the other direction.
