There’s a chance next month to visit a part of the Jubilee line rarely seen – the overrun tunnels that run beyond Charing Cross station towards Aldwych.

The tour is being held to mark the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Jubilee line in 1979. The tours run on Sunday 10 November in the 1996 stock that are currently in use on the line, and will run from Stanmore to Charing Cross, the original route of the Jubilee line when it first opened in 1979.

At Charing Cross, you’ll get the opportunity to stay into the train whilst it manoeuvres into the overrun tunnel and the chance to visit the drivers cab for a photo. The tour then includes a visit to the Hidden London tunnels underneath the station.

The journey between Stanmore and Charing Cross will take approximately 40 minutes. The Hidden London tour, journey into the overrun tunnel and drivers’ cab experience will last for approximately 75 minutes.

The tours cost £90 per adult – although note that includes the tunnel tours which themselves normally cost £40 on their own.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

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 the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
