Millions of us use the London Underground every day, and huge amounts of organization and staff go out to keep the network running.
The stations spread across London provide many people with jobs and the 10 best pay stations have been unveiled.
According to research from the Reboot SEO Agency that scraped job ads on In fact, the highest paying subway station is Waterloo, with an average annual salary of £ 32,247. This is not surprising as Waterloo is not only a major station in London itself but also brings commuters to the capital from places like the affluent commuter towns of Surrey and Hampshire.

It is an essential part of the country’s transportation, and therefore it is number one.
Second is the Mansion House Tube station, with an annual salary of £ 32,092. It comes in less than £ 100 less than Waterloo, and in such a central location, and sitting on the District, and Circle lines, it’s only right that it comes in as number two.
The bronze medal goes to London Bridge with an annual salary of £ 32,076. Like Waterloo, London Bridge is not just a tube station, it is also a train station that ferries travelers across the country – as far as Kent.
In fourth place is Borough Street Station with an annual salary of £ 32,018. It was inevitable that another station in London’s financial zone would find its way into the top five. Borough is a Northern Line veteran, with thousands of moneylenders jumping on its branch every morning.
Next is Liverpool Street Tube Station with an annual salary of £ 31,922. If Liverpool Street had not found its way into the mix, then it would be something, and it probably has something to do with the fact that, like many other tube stations, it is also a train station that ferries the capital’s workforce to … and-from Essex.
Then there is the Barbican Tube Station with an annual salary of £ 31,582. The Barbican sits on three pipelines: Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & CIty. It is close to – as you can imagine – the Barbican property, known for its brutalist architecture.
Next is Bank, with an annual salary of £ 31,471. Bank is the station you are always lost in, especially when you go from Northern Line to DLR.

Then there is the Aldgate Tube Station with an annual salary of £ 31,468. Note this says Aldgate, NOT Aldgate East. It’s a station in Tower Hamlets and pays well.
Next is Cannon Street, with an annual salary of £ 30,000. East Central’s Cannon Street pays $ 30,000 a year. And on Circle and District Line, it’s a key player on our tube lines.
Finally, so is Farringdon with an annual salary of £ 30,000. Most Londoners have at one point set foot inside the Fabric Nightclub, and if you have, you will almost certainly have gotten off the tube at Farringdon.
