Trainspotters will adore this two-hour tour of London’s famous Underground system, led by an expert guide. Travel through history as you experience the world’s oldest underground railway network, dubbed the Tube by locals. You’ll voyage from one of the earliest, original stations, 1863-founded Baker Street, to one of the newest, most futuristic.
En route, hear stories of the network’s fascinating construction in the Victorian era. Unbelievably, its giant tunnels were dug and built by hand before advances in technology. Discover how train design was transformed from steam-powered to electrified rails. Then learn about the Underground’s role during World War II providing shelter for people during the Blitz bombing.
An icon of London and the capital’s lifeblood, the Tube hosts over 1.3 billion passenger journeys a year across its 270 stations. Your guide will share the secrets of haunted and disused stations, with more than 40 left abandoned. Spookily, one station even lies over the remains of 1,000 bodies! Royal-watchers will be intrigued to find out which monarch was the first to ride the Underground. Graphic design fans will get the inside track on the Tube’s much-loved roundel logo. And animal lovers will be amazed by tales of critters joining commuters.
