The great architect Charles Holden was born 145 years ago this year. To celebrate, we will once again be holding our Turnpike Lane to Cockfosters tube station tour. The tour will take place on Saturday 16th May, meeting at Turnpike Lane Station at 10.30am.
Starting at Turnpike Lane and working our way up to the terminus at Cockfosters, we will be looking at some of Charles Holden’s most iconic London Transport work. Taking in the stations of Turnpike Lane, Wood Green, Bounds Green, Arnos Grove, Southgate and Cockfosters, we will also note other modernist buildings along the way, such as Curtis and Burchett's work for Middlesex County Council.
The tour will be limited to 30 people, so book early! The route will be a mixture of walking and tube, so please bring a topped up Oyster card/Contactless credit or debit card and a pair of comfortable walking shoes, plus any refreshments you may need.
