Virtual tours

A disused tunnel at King William Street station

We know that you've been missing our Hidden London tour programme during lockdown. We hope to start them later in the year again, but in the meantime, we're excited to announce two new digital tours of stations that are even more secret than any Hidden London tour before!

These two stations, King William Street and Brompton Road have extremely restricted access so we'll never be able to offer public tours. But with these digital tours, you will get the special opportunity to take a peek inside with an expert guide via Zoom.

You'll be able to see a gallery of photos and videos as well as archival footage from our collection as your expert guide takes you through the history of the station. You'll also get the opportunity to ask your guide any questions you might have about the station and its history. 

There's a limited number of tickets available, but sign up to our enewsletter using the links below to find out when the next season of tickets go on sale.

*As well as your virtual tour, the ticket price includes a half-price entry (one-day ticket, applies to on the door price) to London Transport Museum, and 10% off all Hidden London-inspired products at our shop, valid for a limited period as stated by LTM members of staff and in your tour confirmation email.

Offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers. Booking fee of £1.50 per transaction applies. Full terms and conditions.

Brompton Road 

Located between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations on the Piccadilly line, Brompton Road station was closed in 1934 after the Piccadilly line was extended. It was closed along with stations such as Down Street and York Road as they were only lightly used - with some services passing through without stopping.

Zoom in for this special behind the scenes digital tour to learn about its time as a Second World War bunker and see what the disused station looks like today.

There will also be a Q&A session afterwards, where you'll get the chance to ask our expert guides all about Brompton Road station.

King William Street

King William Street station has the honour of being the first disused deep tube station.

Closed in 1900, King William Street was the original but short-lived northern terminus of the City and South London Railway, which was the first deep-level underground railway in the world. The CSLR, which originally ran from King William Street to Stockwell now form part of the Bank Branch of the Northern line.

Currently, this fascinating station is being used as part of the major Bank station extension project

Zoom in for this special behind the scenes virtual tour to see what the disused station looks like today and find out how it is being used during the Bank project.
