Explore the wonders of Moorgate station, the portal into the City and one of London’s first Underground stations.

The station opened in 1865 as Moorgate Street on the first extension of the Metropolitan line joined in 1900 by the first extension of the Deep Tube. Remarkable re-designs and station upgrades have left behind a maze of disused tunnels, abandoned track and a complete Greathead shield from 1904, the only one of its kind on the London Underground Network.

Guest will get the rare opportunity to visit corridors lined with the original glass tiles of the City and South London Railway, hear how the station served as a freight terminal for decades and see how long disused parts of the station have been repurposed ingeniously in response to the needs of our growing capital.

Moorgate: Metropolitan Maze tours will be held on Wednesdays - Sundays between 21 February and 29 March. To find out more about what tours are available, please click the book now button above.
