  1. A man who can ‘taste’ words has created a flavour map of the London Underground network after visiting every stop during a 49 year project.

    James Wannerton has synaesthesia, a neurological condition that links senses which are normally experienced separately. The map is now being used by researchers to help understand the link between word formations and the tastes synaesthetes experience.

    As an example, Baker Street in central London is one of the ‘tastiest stops,’ says Mr. Wannerton:

    Baker Street is lovely. The best way to describe it is crusty and sweet, like jam roly-poly but slightly burnt. It has got loads of different tastes and textures. I love getting out there.
