London Transport Museum has released tickets for spring and summer dates of London Transport Museum’s exclusive Hidden London Tours, with tours running until the end of August 2023.

The tours offer visitors an exclusive chance to step behind closed doors and explore the locations where London Underground’s history all took place. Hidden London guided tours are the only ones in the city that grant guests access to these locations, which are usually off limits to the public. Nine in-person tours are on offer, including tours of Kingsway tram tunnel for the first time since July 2022, Aldwych’s ‘abandoned’ ticket halls, original lifts and tunnels, Moorgate’s maze of tunnels and complete Greathead shield, Piccadilly Circus’s secret Edwardian features, and the disused Jubilee line platforms at Charing Cross.

Also on offer are tours of the original 19th century passageways and features at Shepherd’s Bush, the bomb-proof wartime corridors concealed at the now disused Down Street station on the Piccadilly line, Euston’s secret 1960s gallery of advertising posters and the labyrinth of underground passages hidden deep beneath Clapham South built to shelter Londoners during the Second World War.

The museum’s newest virtual tour, ‘Hidden London: Discovering the Forgotten Underground,’ which forms part of the museum’s Tube 160 celebrations and covers the history of the network, will also extend its run until 15 August.

There are new dates for London Transport Museum’s Secrets of Central London walking tour of Covent Garden, Kingsway, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and Victoria Embankment. On this tour, expert Hidden London guides reveal fascinating and little-known historical tales and titbits about the area and its transformation over the last 200 years.

All Hidden London tours were written by historical experts from London Transport Museum and based on content drawn from the Museum’s extensive archive and collection. They were named ’Best Hidden Gem in the World’ at the Tiqets’ Remarkable Venue Awards 2022 by public vote.
