The Circle Line has become The Seafront Line and all the stations have turned into pubs on a new version of the London Underground map which celebrates Bridlington’s boozers and bars.

Designer Steve Lovell has created a print in the style of the iconic Tube map, which has seven coloured lines, linking dozens of watering holes in the town centre, Old Town and out as far as Flamborough, Bempton and Carnaby.

Steve has also done pub maps for parts of West Yorkshire, York, Newcastle, Scarborough and Whitby.

He said: “I have always liked the design of the London Underground map and a few years ago I decided to see if I could make a map of pubs instead of stations that would cover all of Leeds.

“I was really pleased with the result and the map has been quite popular.

“I spent time getting information from maps and other online sources and then spending much more time on making all that information into a geometrical map in the iconic style of Harry Beck’s London Under-
ground diagram.

“Although the map is mostly pubs and bars it also includes many restaurants and hotels with decent bar areas.

“There are 60 places on the Bridlington map, which extends up to Flamborough. I’ve also included Stackhouse, which isn’t even open yet.”

The A3-sized posters are available to buy from Steve’s website www.albanydesign.co.uk. or we will be giving away five in a competition in the Free Press next week.
