If you missed the simply BRILLIANT Wapping Thames Tunnel tours carried out by Robert Hulse, he's just emailed me to say that each Saturday in December they will be on again. "Every Saturday in December The Brunel Engine House is organising guided journeys of the Thames Tunnel, by tube train. By kind arrangement with London Underground, the Tunnel will be floodlit so visitors may see the columns, recesses and architectural features of the first underwater shopping arcade. At Wapping we descend a spiral staircase to the bottom of Brunel's original shaft. Travellers should meet in the ticket hall of Rotherhithe tube at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm or 4pm. Tickets cost £5 and include admission to the Museum, just behind the station." For more info check out the Brunel Engine Musuem site.
Me, Neil, Ann and Helene went back in the summertime and since then other readers of this blog popped along when they were repeated during the London Open House Weekend in September, and it seems they are sooooo popular they are now running this winter.
There's also something else on Xmas Shopping ideas, that I will launch from tomorrow in my own "advent calender" of Xmas Gifts for people who like this blog!
