Amazing train stations in Nostalgic London
1) Gants Hill Underground Station
Hundreds of Londoners may well use this gateway to the Central Line every day without ever noticing its unique design, but look up and it’s kind of special. Designed by Charles Holden in a simple, modernist style, the 1930s station features a sleek barrel-vaulted ceiling said to have been inspired by the Moscow metro system. Like what you see? Holden also designed stately Senate House, which houses the University of London’s library, and 55 Broadway, considered to be the city’s first skyscraper.
