As part of the London Open House Weekend, a number of Crossrail building sites will also be opening their hoardings to the public.

The future Elizabeth line stations at Farringdon, Moorgate will be open to the public — but only by pre-booked tickets.

At Moorgate, visitors will get a birds-eye, platform view of the 55 metre deep shaft plus other works and will have the opportunity to quiz engineers about the construction.

At Farringdon, visitors will access the site viewing platform to view the western and eastern ticket hall construction.

Around 700 tickets are being made available, and booking opens on Monday morning (1st Sept) at 10am.


In addition, you can turn up and go inside at Canary Wharf to go down to the ticket hall and platforms levels.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Far too many NERRRRDS in London. Took less than 3 minutes to sell out.

    Sold out by the time I looked! Ah well, the Canary Wharf site is not ticketable, so we will go there.
