The new guy on the tube? The aristocrat who’s helping TfL with their awareness campaigns…. He’s meant to be promoting safety on the escalators…but so far response from the travelling public has been rather biting, even quite rude.

Sir Roundlington’s no doubt risen from the depths of nowhere to assert prime spot as TfL’s new mascot. So far its not much of an impression…. Does anyone think he’ll last long?


One guy to the other: You know, we just passed Sir Roundlington on the escalator? Where? I cant see him…

You know, Sir Roundlington even has his own timeline lol!

Besides Sir Roundlington being a fan of Mr Tim Dunn, you might have also noticed his amazement at being featured on a blog! My blog! Wouldn’t want this mysterious top hat guy who prowls the tube’s escalators to disappear into the forgotten annals of history would we? Might be a modern day Jack the Ripper for all we know!

Yup! Someone used my main Sir Roundlington image for their tweet!

There’s absolutely nothing of repute on Sir Roundlington apart from these and a few other choice tweets, plus those elusive sightings at Oxford Circus where he’s currently doing his rounds – or whatever these might be called!

BONUS! Some other Sir Roundlington photographs I took that were recently found – they’re all Oxford Circus as that was the only place he was found to be residing at:
