Thames Tunnel

Thames Tunnel Tours

TfL and London Overground are running public tours of the historic Thames Tunnel which runs under the Thames between Rotherhithe and Wapping Stations during the Bank Holiday weekend from 24-26 May.

Built by Marc Brunel, the Thames Tunnel was the first tunnel ever dug under a navigable waterway and is regarded as an historic feat of engineering. It currently carries London Overground trains on the Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction/New Cross/Crystal Palace and West Croydon services.

Tickets go on sale on 24 April at 10am and will cost £18 per head, with a £1.50 transaction fee. Ticket availability is strictly limited, and no on the day admissions will be permitted.

All proceeds will go to the Railway Children’s Charity and the Brunel Museum which is holding some special events to mark the occasion http://www.brunel-museum.org.uk/
