Sometimes it's faster to walk

The London Underground is famous for it's beautiful, sylistic map, which incidentally is utterly disconnected from real geography. I'm currently reading Bill Bryson's "Notes From a Small Island" where he notes some examples: Chancery Lane to Farringdon by tube requires two changes and 4 stations. Mansion House to Bank: change once, 6 stops. For someone having never visited, believing the Tube map might waste a lot of time, so here are a couple of good alternatives for newbies to London geography to help evaluate when it will be faster to walk:

A lot of non-tube underground facilities exist as well, check out "Exploring Underground London" (also seen previously in the sideblog) and there are several disused stations, some that can be seen in passing
