How well do you know the London Underground? Nearly all of us have used it at one point and many of us as part of our daily commute.

The city's Tube network has seen refurbishments, technological updates and rule changes in the last few years. Without doubt it has saved many Londoners from traffic jams, but most famously saved many lives during the war when it became a public shelter from the German bombs.

The idea for the London Underground was first put forward as part of a city improvement plan in 1843. Then, after a decade of discussions, Parliament gave the green light for the construction of a 3.75-mile underground railway between Farringdon Street and Bishop's Road, Paddington.

Since then it's got so much bigger and swifter, with the likes of Oyster cards and electronic information boards becoming the norm. The announcements warning passengers to "mind the gap" between the train and the platform has also become the rallying call for many of us.
