Signs of the New Year on the London Underground

You know you're approaching New Year on the tube.....

  • When there's loads of kids on the tube who've not gone back to school yet and tired looking parents

  • When stations are even more filled with people with oversized rucksacks and luggage on wheels

  • When there's a eye hurting display of red and blue Nicotinell "giving up smoking product" ads on the escalators

  • When the exit and entrance to Piccadilly Circus tube station has a little cage around it - to stop people falling down the stairs while "revelling" around Eros

  • When there's loads of out of towners (not just overseas tourists) standing on the left on escalators - CAN'T YOU READ? There are signs saying stand on the right EVERYWHERE.

    Happy New Year's Eve Eve
