    I've been looking at their hidden tours this morning, and I'm quite tempted to sign up for a couple..... I'm just trying to work out which are best, and seeing if any urbs have been and whether they're worth it?

    The options are:
    55 Broadway
    Clapham South Deep Tunnels
    Down Street Station (although this one is £75 :eek: )

    They usually sell out in a blink of an eye :(

    There's tickets available for all 3 currently..... And another one I can't do as its not available on weekends...

    Out of the tunnels and 55 broadway, any idea which would be more interesting?

    I was thinking that, but I do also have a penchant for tunnels.

    I'm assuming 55 broadway is empty at the minute, so I guess it would be worth going to before its converted in the million quid flats, which will sit empty for the rest of eternity, right?

    Oh yeah, I know there's a lot of people who always want to go on the aldwych station tours, which are nigh on impossible to get tickets for...

    But I noticed a company who do movie tours are doing them too now

    You can if you book early enough. I didn't have any trouble getting one a few years ago.

    You can also do tours through English Heritage (if you're a member).

    Hey, editor, carry your equipment for you? Say Dec 14.

    I'm actually really tempted by this. It would be a cool oppurtunity.

    Not really pertaining to this thread but I didn't want to start a new one for this bit of weirdness.

    A subterranean monorail roller-coaster !! :eek::D:eek:
    Boy they had some great ideas back in the day.
    I think I shall write to the Mayor.

    We actually did the Clapham South deep level tour. Was fascinating and well worth the cash. But they do sell out quick as editor says. I got tix as a pressie for my OH's birthday and think I booked last April for March this year and at the point I booked (date tix were released) all the weekends were already gone meaning I had to book for a weekday afternoon and we both had to take the afternoon off work.

    Not sure that I want that. I just wanted a nosey around one or two places...

    The Down Street one, save yourself £75 and just watch one of the many documentaries where someone gets shown around it.

    I'll park my train in its sidings one day. Not yet though.
