On Monday 29 October the London Transport Museum is putting on an event for all lovers of London’s tube network which will feature a discussion with the BBC’s Robert Elms alongside Sam Mullins, David Bownes and Oliver Green – the co-authors of the new book from Penguin, ‘Underground – How The Tube Shaped London’.
Taking place in the museum’s lecture theatre at 6:30pm, this event marks the official launch of the book and the conversation will delve into its secrets – London Underground’s Victorian origins, the extensions into the surrounding countryside that spurred the growth of ‘metro land’, and the challenges of extending London’s transport network to meet the needs of the 21st century.
Tickets for this special event are available online here for just £5 each (£3 concessions). You’ll also be able to pick up signed copies of ‘Underground – How The Tube Shaped London’ on the night.
It looks to be an absolute must for people who are passionate about the tube.
