    One of the deepest underground stations in London. Challenge yourself to walk/run up the escalators to ground level & acknowledge how fit (or unfit!) you are. Feel smug passing all the standers!

    Five stations on the London Underground are named after pubs and Angel is one of them. The others are Elephant & Castle, Swiss Cottage, Royal Oak and Manor House. Cheers!

    The long escalator actually has a mobile signal (at least for O2/GiffGaff), so turn your 'phone back on as you ascend if you want to check in while you wait!

    Heading to Oxford Circus, Victoria, Green Park? Take the front cabin on the Northern Line to Euston. Change over to SB Victoria Line via quick walkway. The King's Cross interchange is much longer.

    If you plan to change at Kins cross, move to the end of platform.

    Left escalator going up is broken. Don't walk it even if your rushing. It's 27m long and feels a mile.

    Coming up the "longest escalators in Europe"? The left hand one moves marginally faster.
