Zoom Tour Live | Mind the Gap: London’s Underground Unveiled

February 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Stephen Benton will guide us through a captivating exploration of the London Underground’s distinctive history. From pioneering the world’s first Underground railway in 1863 to groundbreaking advancements like electric trains in 1890 and the debut of self-service ticket machines in 1904, we will delve into the evolution of this iconic transport system. Our journey will span significant milestones, including the establishment of the first computer-controlled Underground railway in 1968 and the introduction of contactless bank card payments in 2014, all while encountering remarkable landmarks and quirky nuances acquired along the way. Though not a conventional mass transit system designed from scratch, it’s precisely these idiosyncrasies that contribute to the Underground’s undeniable charm. Join us for a fascinating expedition through the twists and turns of this extraordinary story—a testament to London’s innovative spirit in transportation.
