London commuters have faced another period of travel chaos as buses, trains and Tube workers strike again.

Today (August 19) thousands of members of the Rail, Maritime, and Transport Union (RMT) and Unite on London Underground will walk out for 24 hours as the long-running dispute over jobs, pensions and working conditions rumbles on.

But if you still can’t avoid going to London for something important, how are you going to get around?

Walking may be an option, depending on your route.

Transport for London (TfL) actually has a handy tube map that shows how many minutes it takes on average to walk between stations.

TfL wrote next to the map: ‘Walking can be a quick and easy way to get around, especially when traveling at the busiest times, which are 5.45am-8.15am and 4pm-5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

“This map shows how much time it takes to go between stations on the same line.”

The results are quite useful, with most central London stations less than 10 minutes away from each other.

Many of us knew this anyway, and most of us aren’t lucky enough to live in central London, so it’s becoming interesting to look a little further afield.

For example, walking from Elephant and Castle to London Bridge will only take 22 minutes – which is possible, right?

Camden Town to Euston also takes just 19 minutes.

Caledonian Road to King’s Cross takes 27 minutes, and Highbury and Islington to King’s Cross takes 35 minutes – usually two very busy Tube routes.

But if you live in Canada Water and are going to Canary Wharf, you might have to think again, as the trip apparently takes a whopping 144 minutes (the Thames somehow gets in the way).

Note that the Elizabeth Line is not included on the map.
