Description

Mind the gap and welcome aboard this journey through 150 years of London’s Underground history. The London Underground was first opened in 1863 and has grown into one of the world's leading metropolitan railway networks. The tour will begin at Paddington station, before taking you to some of London’s most famous, deepest, beautiful and peculiar underground stations. Throughout your tour you will learn about how London received it's underground; how the different lines used to be owned by rival companies and find out why we now have electric trains instead of steam engines. On each tour the route may change slightly depending on improvement work being conducted to the network. On this fascinating walking tour you will find out how accurate the tube map really is, discover some of the ghosts stations of London as well as all the quirks and things that go unnoticed when traveling through stations on a regular basis.
