    • Mind the gap was always painted on the ground at the edge of the platform but the guard (when they had one) used to yell Mind the doors before departing – now just a beeping sound replaces the yell.

  1. How long does it take to walk from the South Kensington tube station to the Gloucester Road tube station?

  2. Sounds are comparable to those in Montreal’s Metro…but made this expat strangely homesick!

  3. Well…. I remember when the Tube used to be the Tube…..wooden escalators, smoking, etc……okay……more comfortable and clean today…..but as generic and largely indistinguishable from any underground found in most city capitals.

  4. I was in London for a week in May of this year and never did hear “Mind the Gap” except for on the train to Windsor.

  5. I kind of think only someone who has taken that route numerous times as I have, could really appreciate it. Sometimes it isnt what you see that you miss ……..It is the sounds & the smells too. We always stay at a hotel around Gloucester station. We love that area.
