This is the station that gave its name to the world's most prestigious form of ritualised combat. The Game of Mornington Crescent dates back over a century, having been invented by the celebrated Major Carstairs Houghton-Bowry KSC in the hallowed halls of the Royal Empire Club, Pall Mall, in 1883.

With numerous local variations on the basic ruleset (1, get to Mornington Crescent, and 2, stop your opponents getting there first) imposed by the various conflicting international MC Associations, since the infamous Tokyo MC Conference of 1960 Mornington Crescent has been almost universally acknowledged as one of the world's most challenging and rewarding games, not least because of the difficulty of remembering all the rules.
