The Kingsway Tram Subway was probably the most important stretch of tram track in London, linking together the extensive tram networks of north and south London.
It was built by the London County Council and opened in 1906, as part of an ambitious renewal programme for the Holborn and Aldwych areas.
It had relatively short active life, closing in 1952, but despite this, the Subway underwent several major upgrades during its time. Surprisingly, more than half of the subway still exists to this day – complete with original features.
Our newest tour will take you down to explore the remaining tunnel and the former tram station, while you discover its life and times and how it served London.
