WHAT? PICCADILLY CIRCUS DISUSED STATION TOUR - London Transport Museum’s Hidden London Tour
WHERE? Piccadilly Circus Station, London W1J 9HP
WHEN? 21st August - 27th September (check specific days, booking essential)
WHY GO? If you’re curious to explore the London no one else gets to see, are unfazed by being underground or simply want a quirky challenge, you don’t have to be a nerdy train spotter to book this unusual tour. Walk directly under Eros (sturdy shoes recommended) and explore the disused labyrinth full of original Edwardian features. An engineering gem, there are secret doorways, hidden corridors and a whole subterranean world, closed off since 1929. Plus, you’ll escape the daily rush hour jam!
IN THE KNOW? And for your next dinner party conversation piece, check out Aldwych: The end of the line, in October, next up in the Hidden London programme. Famed for myths and memories, Aldwych closed officially in 1994 and has since been the location for many films including Sherlock (2014) and Darkest Hour (2017).
