Confusing Tourists on the Tube

Tube Photo of the Week

Confusing tourists seems to be a growing sport. This was spotted by
Martin Deutsch last week:

"What's King's Cross doing in zone B?"

Also the ever wonderful b3ta had a map challenge last week where people were challenged to create a map that told the truth. Not surprisingly there are many re-creations based on the London Underground Map.

Prawnsoda's tourist map from b3taOne of my favourites for tourist confusion was this as I initially just focused on the free admission to Elephant & Castle on the bottom right. But with closer inspection you'll see why I like it.

Although it's not as well executed I also enjoyed the more truthful central London for tourists.

In my opinion this tourist's A-Z below wouldn't be needed, as tourists seem to inherently know how to get in the way on the Tube.

Check 'em out before TfL's solicitors take on b3ta to try to get them pulled.
