Explore The Abandoned Tunnels Of Moorgate Station On This New Hidden London Tour
Moorgate is the latest station you can explore as part of a Hidden London tour

There's a new Hidden London tour in town — and this one take place in Moorgate station.

Hang on, you're probably thinking, isn't Moorgate a functioning station? (As well as a non-functioning Elizabeth line station.) Well yes it is. But since the station opened in 1865, a series of redesigns has left behind a tangle of disused tunnels and abandoned track.

On your subterranean exploration, you'll wander corridors lined with City and South London Railway branded tiles (the line that Moorgate was originally on), and discover disused parts of the station — some abandoned for almost a century.

The abandoned Greathead Shield is a highlight of the tour

A highlight of the tour is an original Greathead tunnelling shield, left down here in 1904, when a planned tunnel extension was abandoned.

Moorgate: Metropolitan Maze, Wednesdays-Sundays, 21 February-29 March, adults £49.50; concession £44.50
