Transport night at the Tate

Free Talks & trips at Tate Britain

Two FREE transport related events which sound quite interesting tonight:

Subterranean London at 7pm - 8pm

Known by its logo, defined by lines on a map, the London Underground was such an audacious creation that no other city tried to copy it for forty years. Leading transport critic and author of Subterranean Railway: A Social History of the Tube (2004), Christian Wolmar talks through the history of this feat of imagination and construction.

And if you're still missing the Routemaster double decker bus, Joe Kerr who's a Professor at the Royal College of Art and also qualified Routemaster bus driver, will be presenting "a unique insight into the working life and history of the Routemaster, the most iconic symbol of London worldwide."

There are two bus tours of London's bridges -

18.45 Board bus
19.00 Tour departs
19.45 Return to Tate Britain

20.00 Board bus
20.15 Tour departs
21.00 Return to Tate Britain

Tickets for events are available from the Rotunda Information Desk tonight from 6pm

Have fun.
