Hidden London: The ExhibitionExperience an 'abandoned' Tube station and discover stories about Churchill in the Blitz at the London Transport Museum's exhibition, Hidden London. Revealing secrets of disused Underground stations, the exhibition explores what lurks beneath the busy streets of London by taking visitors on an immersive journey through some of the capital's most secret spaces within the oldest subterranean railway in the world. Learn how Churchill took shelter at the height of the Blitz, discover the story of the Plessey aircraft underground factory, which had 2,000 members of staff, and enter Aldwych station's recreated historic ticket office with an original ticket booth from the station dating from the 1930s. The exhibition also showcases a large number of rare archive photos, objects, vintage posters and secret diagrams, many of which will be shown for the first time.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
