#LondonWalks Walk of the Week: The Lure Of the Underground Guided By @jaxonharry

On Sundays we pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

You can check out the full schedule at

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…


10:45 am on Tuesdays from Baker Street Tube Baker Street north exit

There's no need to book. A London Walk takes about two hours and costs £10 or £8 for concs. Kids under 15 accompanied by adult[s] go free

We're going places on this walk so you'll need an Oyster Card or a 2-Zone Travel Card. 

This tour explores the Tube's extraordinary "journey", "trajectory", "trip", call it what you will. Much of the tour is down inside the tube. But not all of it. 

We explore several stations, inside and out. You'll see things that you won't have seen before. Let alone things that you did see before but didn't "see", if you know what, I mean. 

I (David writing, here) went on this one in February. It was a revelationLots and lots of "well, I never" moments, jaw hanging open moments. 

This is a very special couple of hours. Strongly recommended.

The Lure of the Underground walk takes place every Tuesday at 10:45 am

Meet Harry at 10:45 am just outside Baker Street Tube, the Baker Street north exit

Baker Street Tube is on the Circle, Bakerloo, Jubilee,  Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City Lines
