Metro Tiles otherwise known as Underground Tiles are a classic period tile that has become an increasingly popular product in recent times. We manufacture and supply a metro tile range in a beautiful range of lustrous colours.


Metro tiles and London Underground Tile Examples

The words “Metro Tile” and “London Underground Tile” are sometimes used interchangeably. Similar in many ways, there are some key differences. Metro Tiles are raised, bevelled tiles that have a clean, diagonal edge and raised centre, available in 150mm x 75mm and 75mm x 75mm. London Underground Tiles are typically larger, with a flat front, including the 9 x 3 inch format. H & E Smith can supply both types of tile. Contact us for further information.

PROJECT: Ben Sherman

London Underground Tiles – From the mid 1980’s, we have been manufacturing bespoke glazed ceramic tiles and Fainze (moulded tiles) for London Underground refurbishment projects at a number of stations.

We can also supply these distinctive tiles direct to the public and they have been used for various projects, including retail interiors for Ben Sherman who perfectly captured a “London Look” in-store by using these tiles.
