Later this week, tickets will go on sale for a chance to go into one of London Underground’s more significant abandoned tube stations, and here is a preview of what the tours will include.
TfL has confirmed what was suspected earlier, and that the Bakerloo Line wont be stopping at Paddington Station from April until the middle of August – because a new tunnel is being dug to link it to Crossrail.
Transport for London has secured planning permission to open up one of the WW2 bunkers dug deep under London for regular tours.
It’s 1942, and the air raid warnings are screaming. People in select parts of London hurry to their nearest tube station to take shelter.
Around 150 metres below ground, and nearly three times deeper than the deepest tube train, can be found a part of the Crossrail network.
A mass burial site suspected of containing 30 victims of The Great Plague of 1665 has been unearthed at Crossrail’s Liverpool Street building site.
Of all the stations being built by Crossrail, one of the most complex is at Farringdon, and all thanks to an event in the North Sea roughly 10 million years ago.
