Poems on the Underground has been offering poetry to London’s tube travellers for over thirty years. You can read some of our favourite poems here, displayed in their original posters. We shall be regularly adding more poems from our collection, verses new and old, familiar and unfamiliar, serious and comic. We hope you will enjoy poems which have entertained millions of London commuters, inspiring similar programmes across the world.

We’re delighted to be back on the Tube with a new set of Poems in August, and to welcome travellers back to London Underground with a free leaflet of London Poems, now available in London Underground stations.
