Event Details

EXPLORE three underground structures around Holborn (Kingsway) in the company of an expert guide.

Once known for its slum housing, this area was to become a new business district for London with wide boulevards and grand office buildings.

Under the streets was a tram subway underneath Kingsway, while the Piccadilly line had a station at Holborn and a branch line down to Aldwych to serve the many theatres of Covent Garden.

Find out how public transport unlocked parts of London previously inaccessible at the turn of the 20th Century and how these spaces adapted and changed when they were no longer required.

The exclusive virtual tour features never-before-seen footage led by an expert guide and a Q&A session afterwards, on various dates in December.
