Go deep into Euston’s Lost Tunnels

Always fancied a wander down a disused tube tunnel? You’d better be quick

Here’s what we reckon: very few of the 42 million folk who use crazybusy Euston tube station every year would guess that they pass within metres of two disused stations as they hurry home.

Which is why this new 75-minute tour from the folk at Hidden London is so fascinating: it explores a century of the station’s history, from its humble beginnings on the corner of Melton and Drummond Streets, to its future as the terminus for the brand new HS2 line up to the Midlands and beyond.

You’ll discover a labyrinth of dark, dusty passageways once used by the travelling public, a gallery of preserved vintage advertising poster fragments concealed for over fifty years, and see the iconic Leslie Green-designed station – before it’s swept away forever.

So it’s a once-in-a-lifetime kinda thang, but be warned: each tour sells out fast.
