Bank DLR Station
10 locals recommend
A local expert says
Bank station is the busiest in terms of people passing through—so many people change here. It’s quite complex, a rabbit warren of interchange corridors and connections. Check out the Trav-O-Lator—the first moving walkway in Britain when it was installed in 1960. Ride it when you transfer to the Waterloo & City line.
There’s an incredible—but easy to miss—sight in one of Bank’s corridors: part of the Greathead Shield that was used to tunnel the Waterloo & City line. Look for a red archway (the rest is buried) and a plaque halfway down the interchange corridor between the Waterloo & City line and the DLR.

I make videos for the Londonist website and lead Hidden London tours for the London Transport Museum. Twice I have been the Guinness World Record holder for visiting every London Underground station in the fastest time.

Bank Station is the centre of the City of London. It used to be the only centre of London couple of hundred years ago. Now it is a financial centre of the UK and maybe Europe. However, small hidden streets still exist between the skyscrapers. Hence, if you are keen to see the way London used to look…

This is the oldest part of Roman London, the cross roads at the centre of the city. Now its the financial centre rebuilt after the bombing of WW2.
