Woo! Woooo!

Start perfecting those pin curls and brushing up on your vintage slang — you could be taking a trip to 1930s London. On Sunday 19 May, London Transport Museum is hosting one of its famous heritage vehicle outings: meaning you've got the rare chance to ride a genuine 1938 art deco tube train.

Three trips along the Piccadilly line run as follows:

  • Northfields to Oakwood and back to Northfields.
  • Two trips to Northfields, Heathrow Terminals 4 and back to Northfields.

Mmmm... we can practically feel that retro moquette already.

The journey to Oakwood aboard the beautifully restored train costs £35 for adults and £25 for kids over 11 and concessions. The shorter trips to Heathrow cost £25 for adults and £20 for kids and concessions. Keep an eye on the website for tickets.
