London Transport Museum’s Hidden London Virtual Tours allow guests to explore a series of fascinating and secret places in the capital from the comfort of their own homes.
During the events, participants are transported to a ‘subterranean world of shadowy tunnels and secret spaces’ as they are walked through a gallery of contemporary photos, videos, never before seen footage and archival images, while an expert guide reveals fascinating facts and tales about subterranean London.
