... yeah that's a normal ticket hall.

I love how absolutely normal some of the pictures that are posted here are, but I guess it's interesting for people who don't live here?

Well, that's what metro stations are all about. Railways, platforms, ticket halls, escalators.

Fortunately, London Underground provides a very ecletic mix of architecture and decorations.

Congratulations.

I agree, it may not be as grand or as modern as other cities but there is a large variety of different architectural styles and idiosyncrasies.

Recent mass transit systems seem to have the same pattern in most stations. The architectural variety is probably more expensive to maintain but a lot more interesting.

No, they can... Nothing wrong with 4 people sharing a pre-pay Oyster provided they all touch in and out with it.

Oh really? I thought it wasn't possible, but just wanted to be sure. To finish this off-topic I will send you a private message, if you don't mind.
Thank you very much both of you.

Well, now I'm confused. I've sent you a private message, but just if anyone was wondering the same question, TFL just send me:

Thank you for your email.

An Oyster card can not be used by 4 people at the same time. Each person travelling needs to have an Oyster card.

Regards

Kentish Town is one of the few stations outside of Zone 1 that has a convenient interchange between NR and LU. Also it is one of the few to retain the original Yerkes tile patterns, although it's a pastiche.

Connection between the Tube and NR in strategic points must be really a plus for most passengers.
