Continuing our series of original art and photography inspired by subterranean London.

Today's instalment features an assortment of London tunnels from various photographers. Three of the images capture the Thames Tunnel at Wapping and Rotherhithe, while the remaining two show a couple of tunnels beneath London buildings rarely seen by the public.

We’ve now reached the closing date for our competition, and the winning entries — which will go on show in the Bishopsgate Institute — will be announced next week. However, we’ll keep the series running online, as we’ve received many excellent images yet to be published. Please feel free to send any further subterranean drawings, paintings or photos to matt@londonist.com.
