If you've ever been affected by rail delays and wondered how long it would take to walk home, a new Tube map could be the thing for you.
Transport for London has expanded its walking map to include Zone 3 stations, showing the distance between stops in both minutes and number of steps.
A previous version of the map, which included Zone 1 and 2 stations only, proved popular with tourists and commuters alike.
Leon Daniels, managing director, Surface Transport at TfL, said: “We recognise the influence that travel choices have on how healthy people can be in London. If we do things differently, such as helping to reduce car use by providing nicer places to walk, live and work, we can help deliver amazing health benefits to Londoners.
“Our new Walking Tube map is designed to help people who want to get more active and try making more of their journey round on foot.”
Newham boasts the shortest distance between stations in Zone 3 – seven minutes or 700 steps between Custom House and Prince Regent – as well as part of the longest.
Canning Town to North Greenwich only takes two minutes on the Jubilee line but would take 104 minutes, or 104,000 steps, by foot as it involves a diversion to cross the Thames.
Other notable journeys include 24 minutes between West Ham and Stratford – which may be useful for those attending matches at the London Stadium – and nine minutes between Royal Victoria and the temporarily closed Custom House.
