Secrets of the London Underground has quickly gained a loyal audience on Yesterday, reaching over 10.1 million individuals across all series to date, and is among the top performing Yesterday titles on UKTV Play.

The new series is filming now, reuniting rail historian Tim Dunn (The Architecture The Railways Built) and Siddy Holloway from London Transport Museum, as they unearth more secrets about the tube’s history.

Chris Nix, Assistant Director at the London Transport Museum, will also be acting as a Historical Consultant to share the fascinating stories that were unveiled from the museum’s archives.

Elizabeth McKay, Director of London Transport Museum, said “We are thrilled to be working with UKTV again to share the stories and treasures from our museum archives with the public. There are still so many secret locations to explore on the Underground network, and we can’t wait to take viewers behind the scenes to reveal even more of its fascinating history.”

Secrets of the London Underground will air in a peak time slot in 2024 on UKTV’s free-to-air Yesterday channel, with all previous series currently available to stream for free on UKTV Play.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it 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 it's 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 you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Looking forward to this 👍🏼🤗

    Me too but suspect it will struggle with decent subjects. The last batch did, there being a limit to the number of small sections of old tile one can realistically get excited about!

  3. Alex Mckenna says:

    WoW. Good news. I think I prefer the YouTube series “Hidden London”, but will always be glued to both.

  4. Steve Bater says:

    I’m pleased to hear another series of this programme is coming back. It’s great to see the places that you would love to see but not possible to do so physically. Tim Dunn gets so excited just seeing a door being opened and Siddy Holloway has fantastic stories and knowledge of every station on the Underground.

    • Willsy says:

      Unfortunately, whilst I enjoy the series I find Tim Dunn almost unwatchable. He can’t stop,orchestrating every word with his hands & I’m sick to death of being told “we’ve been given special/privileged/ unprecedented access or words to that effect. The man is over-the-top in his enthusiasm.

  5. John Gauci says:

    Yes, have thoroughly enjoyed watching the series. I think it’s great that another is on the way.

  6. Andy says:

    great stuff – cannot wait!

  7. Trevor Hobbs says:

    Thanks to these programs I view the underground with much greater interest, I even get off at stations just to look at some old tiles.

  8. Andy says:

    Cant wait for the next series

  9. Mossman007 says:

    It’s good news that a new series is underway however I wish someone would have a quiet word with Tim about curbing the false enthusiasm and perpetual nodding when someone is explaining something.
    On another note I suggest Siddy should be commissioned to present a new series exploring the saunas and spa facilities of European hotels. I am suggest this for a friend.

  10. Kev James says:

    Easy to watch and very informative… and I live up North and only use The London Underground occasionally. Tim is a great guy and they both compliment each other. Brilliant programme.
