Literary Tube Map of London

16th February 2023

We have been talking to Tom Matthews, Founder of Local Book Donations who have created a fabulous literary tube map of London…

Over to Tom: We created this literary tube map of London as a way to encourage reading and to get people excited about truly fantastic literature. We think great novels have the ability to paint places like nothing else can; and the novels on our map are no different.

Of course, we featured the outstanding DraculaThe Picture of Dorian Gray, and Dr Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, but we also featured lesser known titles that we think need recognition. Hangover Square and The Wimbledon Poisoner are just two of the modern London stories that bring something new and interesting to this star-studded map.

This tube map of the city is unique because it shows you where your favourite characters made a name for themselves. From the legendary Harry Potter boarding his train to Hogwarts at Kings Cross, to Mary Poppins flying into the Banks’ family home just off the Central Line.

You can vividly picture Ebenezer Scrooge skulking home after work through the streets near Monument station, and Sherlock storming out of his address at Baker Street to solve another case – closely followed by faithful Watson.
