    As part of the rebuilding the sub surface and tube stations were connected behind the barriers.

    From the 'outside' it actually looks the opposite with two gatelines serving the deep tube lines and one serving the sub-surface lines.
    They had been connected behind the barrier lines for a very long time before the rebuilding.

    You've fallen for the signage that sends you via the 'tourist route'.

    To be honest, I only ever take the Northern line. Interesting to know though!

    It is the other way around. 1 set of gates serving Metropolitan etc, 2 sets of gates serving Piccadilly etc. You cannot get from Metropolitan to Piccadilly without passing through a set of gates.

    You most certainly can get from the Met to the Piccadilly without passing through a set of gates. In fact once through any set of gates you can get to any line.

    Unless the infamous one way system is in operation!

    Good map. It really does demonstrate how long the 'tourist route' to the Victoria Line is, especially when you consider the signs for the Victoria, Piccadilly and Northern Lines adjacent to the Tube Ticket Hall direct you to the Northern Ticket Hall.

    IIRC there's one point in the subterranean tourist attraction where the Victoria line is signed in both directions!
