Exhibitions
Hidden London: The Exhibition
Now on - Dec 31, 2020

London hides many a mystery beneath the smog, asphalt, and innumerable branded coffee houses. Now, you can explore the history of the capital in all its subterranean glory with the London Transport Museum's Hidden London exhibit.

Rare archive photos, never-before-seen objects, vintage posters, secret diagrams, and even decorative tiles from disused stations have been brought together to provide a snapshot of London's now-concealed underground world.

Delve into the city's forgotten Tube networks and discover the incredible stories they keep. Learn about their importance in wartime Britain, including the underground railway's role in sheltering citizens from the Blitz – Winston Churchill himself holed up at Down Street station during the worst of the bombing.

Immerse yourself in the abandoned ticket hall of Aldwych station with an authentic 1930s ticket machine, and see other iconic locations recreated in the Global Gallery. You'll recognise some from the big screen, used in box-office winners Skyfall and V for Vendetta.

Description

Red buses, black cabs, and the tube. Transport and London are so synonymous with each other that they have their own museum!

Explore London's relationship with the public transport systems which shaped its identity, from 18th-century horse-drawn buses to its pioneering underground railway, and the iconic tube map.

Housed in a charming old flower market, the refurbished vehicles and colourful exhibits tell the story of how transport enabled London's development over the last 200 years.
