Both commuters and tourists can struggle with the layout of the London tube map but a new circular design could end their travel woes.
A look back at some of the stops on London Underground's 150 year journey.
The first steam train to carry Tube passengers for over 100 years did a test run for the Tube's 150th anniversary celebrations in 2013.
The Rail Maritime and Transport Union said that it was balloting drivers on the Picadilly line in a row over working conditions and agreements.
Union bosses have announced a vote on possible strike action on the Underground - on the day that Conservative politicians called for a ban on Tube strikes.

The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Cambridge are going underground, to celebrate the 150th birthday of the tube.
The Royal party will be greeted at Baker Street by the Commissioner of Transport for London, Sir Peter Hendy, and the Managing Director of London Underground Mike Brown.
They'll meet maintenance and train staff and will view a restored 1892 underground coach. They'll then walk through a new S7 train where the queen will unveil a plaque, naming the train Queen Elizabeth II.
"Mind the Gap" - three little words that most Londoners barely notice anymore.
But for Margaret McCollum that simple instruction on the underground has a very personal meaning. It was the voice of her late husband Oswald Lawrence.
Robyn Dwyer explains:
An old version of London Underground's iconic 'Mind the Gap' announcement is to be restored at Embankment Tube station, after the widow of the actor who recorded it asked for the chance to hear her husband's voice again.
Oswald Laurence made the recording more than 40 years ago and could be heard all over the capital until it was phased out.
Embankment eventually became the only station to play the message, with Mr Laurence's widow telling staff she used to go there after his death so she could listen to his voice until it was eventually discontinued there too.
London Underground director Nigel Holness said: "Transport for London were approached by the widow of Oswald Laurence to see whether she could get a copy of the iconic 'mind the gap' announcement her husband made over 40 years ago.
"We were very touched by her story, so staff tracked down the recording and not only were they able to get a copy of the announcement on CD for her to keep but are also working to restore the announcement at Embankment station."
A London artist is attempting to paint every single London Underground station.
This is Ross Ahsmore's version of Arsenal Station. He is doing it to mark 150 years of the tube.
Artist Ross Ashmore has embarked on an ambitious task of painting all 267 London Underground Stations.
So far he has completed 210 and the project has taken him 3 years.
To coincide with this year's 150th Anniversary of London Underground, he will finally complete all the paintings, of all the stations, this summer.Ross' paintings are about to go on display for one month in a pop-up gallery that Londoners can visit for free.
The show runs from 4th March - 5th April at the Space gallery in Southgate.
The problems come just one day after news that drivers on the Jubilee line are to be balloted for industrial action in a row over working conditions and allegations of bullying.
Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union on the Jubilee line will vote in the coming weeks on whether to launch a campaign of industrial action.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: "Our members will not sit back and allow the misuse of procedures to bully and intimidate our members, and they are are sick of the gradual decline in working conditions."
John Doyle, Jubilee Line general manager for London Underground, said: "The unions have informed us that they are in dispute with us over what they perceive as a breakdown in industrial relations.
"We are keen to understand their concerns and so will be meeting with the union later this week to discuss these issues in greater detail."
