    Access to DLR platforms is often restricted at peak times, which means you'll sometimes queue for 10/15 minutes.

    Very very busy during rush hour

    Takes a long time to change between the lines especially if you are getting the Circle/District from Monument

    The distance between Bank and Monument on the tube map may be to scale! The ultimate fitness hike...

    Change here for DLR services to Eastern London, including Canary Wharf and Greenwich ;)

    Do you like sweating? Do you like ignorant business people? Do you like clueless tourists? Do you like over-crowded platforms? Then Bank station is the transportation hub for you!

    Look for this red structure in the tunnel connecting Waterloo & City line with DLR. It's a visible part of a machine used to construct this place.

    Long walk? Signs are misleading to make space so the station can handle rush hour ;)

    The WORST interchange on the network bar none. If you want to transfer between the Central and Circle/District Lines, get out and walk to Cannon Street.

    The only one syllable station on the tube network, and also the joint shortest name (with Oval). Bank also has more escalators than any other station on the tube, and Europe's oldest travolator (1960)

    Changing trains can be a hassle esp when I'm coming from District Line to Northern/Central lines. Its a very good way to exercise if you lack one.

    If you have a pram/luggage & need to get from the Central Line to the DLR, take the escalators to the exit, then it's two lifts back down.

    Keep fit and use the stairs not the lifts.

    Archaeologists working during the construction of Bank DLR in 1991 recorded an urban Roman villa dating from the 2nd century. The building remained until the 4th century, when it was dismantled.

    DON'T use Monument for the DLR as you just have to walk to the Bank (Northern and Central) part underground. The DLR starts/ends at Bank NOT Monument!

    If you're changing to the Central line, turn right after going up the escalators to save on climbing more steps than necessary

    There's nowt like pretending you're a train driver is there? Well thank god for the driverless DLR. Sit up front and pretend you're Big Dog shuttling people through the Wharf's skyscrapers & waterways

    Use the Monument Station entrance for the DLR, because entering through Bank will have you walk for miles underground.

    Bank station has the longest tunels kn the underground network. Not really a tip, but a nerd fact really.

    During the London Blitz in January 1941, the Central line ticket hall of Bank station took a direct hit, killing 57 people. The crater measured 100 feet by 120.

    There's a 'hidden' stairway direct to the Northern Line platforms - saves an unwanted tour of the station otherwise. Go to the front end of the outgoing platform to find it.
