As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture and celebrating great Holden design, join our guides on 1 of our most popular walking tours. London Transport Museum’s knowledgeable guides continue their investigation of Piccadilly Line stations as examples of ‘British Modernism.’  In the early 1930s, concepts developed by the architect Charles Holden were incorporated into a number of District and Piccadilly line stations in west London. Starting at Sudbury Town, and taking in Alperton, Park Royal and Acton stations we will explore how aspects of a busy Tube station were handled in the ‘Holden style’ design. (The tour also includes a brief excursion into the 1920s/30s Hanger Hill (Haymills) estate near Park Royal).

*Please note that participants will need a travel card or equivalent ticket for zones 3 & 4. The tour will involve getting on and off trains, steps and some walking.
**Spaces are limited to 12 on each tour.  Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Oliver Green talks tall. 90 years ago the Underground needed a big new head office. Architect Charles Holden came up with a striking design for a difficult site over St  James's Park station. When it opened in 1929 this was the tallest building in Westminster (at ten storeys!) and won the prestigious RIBA London architecture medal. 55?Broadway's innovative Manhattan style was a revelation in London. Although widely praised as stylish and prestigious office development, its avant garde sculptures by Jacob Epstein adorning the facade were controversial, causing scandalised outrage in the popular press. Today it is a grade 1 listed building with the same level of architectural heritage protection as St Paul's Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament.
