Walking the London Underground
The Victoria Line
For the past year, I’ve been living in London and walking tube lines on occasional free weekends with my girlfriend, Jess.
It might seem a rather odd thing to do, and it probably is! But until I moved to London, just over a year ago, I don’t think I had realised how enormous the city was, and quite how little I knew about it. Walking the tube lines seemed a good way to rectify both of these things, and have a little adventure on our free weekends.
We’re just over half way through now, and were chuffed to have Matt from BEANBAG Media join us to walk the Victoria Line. I hope you enjoy the short video he put together.

James is a highly acclaimed public speaker, delivering keynotes, lectures and debates to a wide range of audiences including students, the public, conservation practioners and scientists. Rather than further polarizing already divisive conservation topics, James aims to explain the complexity and nuance of conservation. What we choose to do over the next five decades, will profoundly influence the diversity of life on eath for the next 5 million years. It’s never been a more important, or more exciting time to be a conservationist.
