List Rules Zone 1, 2, and 3 Underground stations only

The 270 stations served by the London Underground are all unique and charming in their own way. Some are well run and efficient, others have a distinct charm, witty platform announcers, or even a Star Wars-like feel. But which Tube stations are the absolute best?

Serving Greater London since 1863, the Tube is the oldest rapid transit system, rich in history, and certainly not short on character. Londoners would be lost without the Underground and the rapid public transport system easily puts many American cities' public transportation infrastructures to shame. The system was also the world's first underground railway, using a series of tunnels, through which the trains ran.

 With 11 lines and 402 kilometers of track, the system is huge and all these stations have their own atmosphere. Many London residents have their favorite, top Tube stations, where even the hustle and bustle of commuting to work can't get them down. The charm of the London Underground comes as no surprise, since the London Passenger Transport Board (which ran the system from 1933-1948) was a patron of art and design, giving the Tube rich roots in design, the arts, and modern style.

So which are the best Underground stations in London? Upvote the most delightful stops on the Tube or rerank the list to reflect your own opinions!
