Hidden London

Hidden London LogoHidden London is our programme of exclusive tours and events at locations rarely seen by the public.

Explore ‘forgotten’ parts of the Tube network on atmospheric tours of disused stations and tunnels, go behind the scenes at some of London’s busiest stations, and uncover some of the City's fascinating history with our expert guides.

Hidden London tours - Spring/Summer 2020

Your safety, and the safety of our staff and volunteers, is our top priority.

In line with the latest advice from the Government and Public Health England, all Hidden London tours taking place between Wednesday 18 March and Sunday 1 August will no longer be going ahead.

We have also made the decision to suspend further ticket sales for all Hidden London tours taking place for the spring/summer 2020 season. We still hope to run tours over the summer, but this will be dependent upon the latest government advice. We know this will be disappointing news for many people who are keen to book, but we would love to welcome you back to in the future. 

You can choose to donate the cost of your ticket to the Museum. More than 80% of our operating costs are raised through ticket sales and commercial activity so your generous support will be invaluable, helping us to continue our education and heritage work when we reopen.

Keep up to date with our Coronavirus updates on our website page, by signing up to our enewsletter or following us on social media, plus watch the latest episodes from our Hidden London Hangouts mini-series on our YouTube channel. 

We will never pass your personal information on to any other organisation for marketing purposes and do not sell or rent personal information to third parties for any purpose. Find out more about your privacy.
