Disused Tube Tunnel Tours

Sat 27 January 2018 - Sun 25 March 2018

Check website for details

The London Transport Museum has announced a fresh series of tours of disused tube tunnels and buildings, with tickets going on sale next week.

Note, if you sign up for their newsletter, you get early bird access to the tickets, which is worth while as some of their tours sell out very fast.

Thanks to @IanVisits a blogger worth reading and a twitter worth following for this info.

 

The tours:

Clapham South: Subterranean shelter

Journey 180 steps underground to explore one of eight deep-level shelters that exist across London. Opened to the public in July 1944, Clapham South deep-level shelter has over a mile of subterranean passageways that reveal the extraordinary stories of those who sheltered here, from Londoners seeking refuge during the Blitz, to hopeful Caribbean migrants arriving on the Empire Windrush, and even thrifty visitors to the Festival of Britain.

Euston station: The photography tour

An opportunity to take the photographs you want of the heritage features of the traditional Leslie Green station, capturing its unique architecture and style. You will gain access to the inside of a large operational fan room to see how old transitions to new. Then head underground where you will be able to explore the old passenger corridors, walk under the old lift shaft and discover hidden ventilation tunnels.

Especially designed for photographers who want time and access to these unique underground spaces.
