TUNNEL VISION: THE CITY BENEATH THE CITY

They certainly don’t disappear. Take Aldwych. It’s been shut to the public since 1994 when the branch line that it was situated upon closed down. Since its termination, it’s been used for various film and television programs. It’s even been used as the location for a Blitz-themed commemorative event.

And now, it’s to be the site of an interactive event commissioned by the London Transport Museum, where visitors will be allowed to re-imagine and embrace the network’s long history through visiting the old platform and ticket offices. Getting a glimpse at the station would be fascinating, but I guess it’s bound to whet the appetite. Makes you wonder what the countless other tunnels and stations of the old network have to offer: an underground city that remains largely unbroken, but hardly ever beheld.

The exhibition begins on 3rd September 2013. Head over to the London Transport Museum’s website for ticket details and further information.
