Tube map with walk lines

This is very cool. Anyone living in, or visiting, London should take note!

The iconic London Underground Tube Map is obviously not to scale. However, I (and probably many others!) can only think of London geography in reference to the tube map. This means that we often don't reason how close some tube stops are to each other. This tube map with walk lines shows tube stations which are only ~500 metres apart as-the-crow-flies.

As the site shows, it may sometimes be faster to walk between stations than to take the tube, especially in Zone 1!
