The Northern line is officially London’s most hated tube line

But how can anyone dislike the Victoria line?!

The Northern line is London’s least favourite underground line, according to a survey by YouGov.

23 per cent of all commuters said that they dislike taking the Northern line, with the Central and Bakerloo lines filling out the top three most hated London Underground lines.

A staggering 250 million people a year travel on the Northern line, making it one of the busiest lines. It is also one of the hottest lines with an average steamy summer temperature of 28°C.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Jubilee line was shown to be the most liked, with 51 per cent of commuters saying that they generally liked travelling on it. This result is not surprising, considering that the Jubilee is the newest line, having only opened in 1979.

Interestingly, the Jubilee line is the third busiest Tube line coming just behind the Northern Line, which suggests that it really is the infrastructure, and not the crowds, that lets the Northern Line down.

However, I think we can all agree that anything is better than taking the bus.
