The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) opened to the public on the 24th May 2022 and we'll be updating our database with the new stations from that date as soon as we can!
Station Master is an encyclopædia of knowledge of all London Underground, original 84 Overground (pre-June 2015) stations and Docklands Light Railway stations including the best door position for exit at every station, along with unique 3D Maps showing you the facilities at and layout of ALL 270 Tube stations.
Co-created by Geoff Marshall, a two-times Guinness World Record Holder for travelling to all Tube stations in the fastest time possible (a record he held most recently from 2013–2015). http://www.tubeworldrecord.co.uk/

Ratings and Reviews
From darkness to light
Ever get confused as to how on earth some of the largest stations that you probably move through are configured? Ever wonder if perhaps there was a better, quieter, quicker route to take? Well, this app has it all. Genuinely one of my favourite apps of all time!
Paid the £3.99 for this because of the simple exit map shown in the AppStore for Old Street. Sadly this feature is not available for many stations, like the ones where it would be most useful: London Bridge, Waterloo, Kings X St P, etc. That’s the only feature that would have made this app worth paying for, for me anyway.
The 3D maps are ok as far as they go, but you need to know the area around the station for them to be of any use, and for example the one for London Bridge shows Tooley St and Borough High St as being parallel at opposite ends of the station, when in fact they are at right angles, and join up right next to one of the Tube exits! So pretty rubbish really.
Also worth noting that the app refers to your built-in Apple maps system, which is famous for putting the label for underground stations in sometimes completely random locations, nowhere near any actual station entrance/exit.
Disappointing, not easy to understand details for which I bought this
I bought this to understand how to get from the entrances to certain platforms as quickly as possible. Maps have diagrams of platforms in a horizontal fashion then text mentions the south or north of these platforms?
Including references to the numbers we see in the maps in the accompanying text would have made this so much easier to understand. The text refers to a specific staircase at the ‘south’ of this horizontal platform, but there’s a number of staircases showing on the map on this platform.
