The District Line of the London Underground is one of the most sprawling. Stretching from Upminster in the east and Edgware Road in the north of Central London to Kensington Olympia, Wimbledon, Richmond and Ealing Broadway in the west, it takes in a very wide area. The District Line is coloured a rich green on the standard tube map.

On my map, below, east is at the top.

The District Line is concurrent with the Hammersmith and City Line from Barking to Aldgate East and with the Circle Line from Tower Hill to Gloucester Road and from Edgware Road to High Street Kensington.
