Go subterranean and visit the site of the world’s first underwater shopping arcade. Designed by Brunel and originally opened in 1843, the tunnel under the Thames was repurposed for transport in 1869. The Grand Entrance Hall recently reopened to the public for the first time in 150 years. Now you can take a tour of this Brunel Museum conversion project, which began with the installation of an underground amphitheatre, created by Transport for London and engineers Balfour Beatty Carillion. No booking is required; the ticket price includes entry to the museum, plus a story-card from the likes of Jo Brand, Michael Palin and Zoe Wanamaker, who have each written a special Brunel-inspired story.
