Nothing embodies the exhilarating hustle and bustle of London better than the capital’s iconic transport system – the world’s first subterranean railway. Linking the city’s many districts, the London Underground is a pulsing network serving people from all walks of life. It takes commuters to the office and tourists from around the globe to see the city’s great sights. Ride on the Tube and you’ll catch an intriguing glimpse into the London way of life – edgy, trendy, bold and multicultural. And now you can capture that raw London spirit by hanging cool London Underground posters in your home. Just take a look at our collection…
You might not know it, but the London Underground map is actually considered a work of radical genius! Henry Beck is the man behind the map, which makes the complicated system easy to understand and navigate. Choose London Underground posters like ‘London Underground – Black Map’ for a little piece of London history that is all yours. Plus, the many colours of the map make it an eye-catching piece. For a more abstract version of the map, the hipster tones and textures of ‘London abstract’ would look fantastic in a hallway with stylish pure white walls. The instantly recognisable Underground symbol also makes for a striking focal point, whether you choose a simple print of the symbol as in ‘London Underground – Logo’ or a print of the sign next to one of London’s famous sights as in ‘London Underground Big Ben monochrome’.
First opened in 1863, the Tube has been a feature of London life for over 150 years. Why not celebrate this long history with a vintage print? London Underground posters like ‘The lure of the underground’ or ‘Brightest London Underground’ are bang on the current vintage trend. You’ll also find some beautiful historic paintings showcasing the Tube, such as ‘Underground Railway from London Town’ and the 19th century ‘Banquet in the Thames Tunnel’.
To make sure your London Underground posters look their best, have a think about your choice of material. Crisp photographic shots look dazzling printed on sleek acrylic glass or Alu-Dibond for a slender, glossy effect. A simple Tube symbol on a white background would look best printed on lightweight Forex foam board, while paintings and vintage prints are enhanced when printed on canvas. And of course, there’s always affordable photographic paper!
