Hidden London, Transport Museum, London: October 2010-31 January 2021

Hidden London: the Exhibition takes you on an immersive journey to some of London’s most secret spaces in the oldest subterranean railway in the world.

These ‘forgotten’ parts of the Tube network have incredible stories to tell about Britain’s wartime past - such as the Plessey aircraft underground factory which had 2,000 members of staff, mostly women, working in the two 2.5 mile-long tunnels on the eastern section of the Central line during the Second World War.

You can enjoy - some for the very first time - a huge number of rare archive photos, objects, vintage posters, secret diagrams and decorative tiles from disused stations that have been brought together in one place and discover dozens of stories, for example about how Churchill took shelter at the height of the Blitz in the Railway Executive Committee’s bomb-proof headquarters deep underground at Down Street station.

You can also explore other iconic locations which are being recreated in the Global Gallery, including the historic abandoned ticket hall at Aldwych station with an original 1930s ticket booth, and its famous Leslie Green tiles.
