About this tour

When trains first started running beneath the streets of Victorian London they were big, smoky and gaslit. They were also fast, cheap and very popular. In normal times nowadays it’s still fast, it’s clean, not so cheap and used over three million times a day. London is shaped by, and depends on the Underground.

We’ll talk about the early days and how the network developed. Then we’ll “visit” various stations, and other locations. Looking for little details you may otherwise not notice, to tell a host of other stories, encompassing engineering, design, architecture and social history.
