Welcome back to the London Underground daily quiz. Today it’s the turn of the Circle line!
Good luck and remember, answers are at the bottom of the page.
The Circle line: Questions

Q2. Which Circle line station features a disused platform that’s now used as a gallery for regular art installations?
Q3. How many stations are named after old City of London gates?
Outside which station would you find this statue of a Roman Emperor? And a bonus point if you can name him!
On a black and white map of the Underground, which of the above represents the Circle line, A, B or C?
Q6. In 2009, a ‘spiral’ was added to the Circle line. Between which stations does this section run?
Q7. Consumption of alcohol is now forbidden on the tube, but for many years a number of London Underground stations had small bars on their platforms! The last of these closed in 1985 at which station? Bonus point if you can name this former establishment.
The above photograph was taken in 1868. Which station does it depict?
Q9. Outside which station would you find the Joe Strummer Subway?
Q10. London isn’t the only city to have a circular line on its underground network.
Pictured below are the logos of four other metro systems which also feature circular routes. Can you name the cities/systems these emblems represent? You can have a point for each one you get correct- and a bonus point if you get all four!
Q3: Two stations are named after former City gates: Aldgate and Moorgate. From a certain perspective you could also include Barbican, although this name is more in reference to a larger Roman fort…
Q4: The statue, along with a good section of London’s Roman Wall, can be seen outside Tower Hill station. The statue depicts the Emperor Trajan; a strange choice as it’s believed he never visited Londinium.
Q6: The spiral section added in 2009 runs between Edgware Road and Hammersmith.
Q7: The bar was at Sloane Square station. It was known as the ‘Hole in the Wall.’
Q10: A- The Moscow Metro (the Koltsevaya line), B- The Glasgow Subway, C- The Copenhagen Metro (The City Circle line) D- The Madrid Metro (lines 6 and 12).
How did you get on? Hopefully those ten questions didn’t leave you in too much of a spin!
