Tube Tent goes Travelling (Kid's version available too)

Those who remember my post about the
London Underground Tube Tent, may like to see that the Northern Line tent has been touring around the country.  Naturally it used the London Underground itself for part of the journey.

OK it didn't!  Those of you who know your Tube stations very well may detect that this was shot on the disused section of the Jubilee Line at Charing Cross, where a number of ads & publicity pictures are filmed.

However, The Monster Factory, the tent's manufacturers, have been taking the Tube tent on tour. It's been at V with One Direction, with Butlers in the Buff in Bristol and in a forest in China.

If that two thousand quid price tag is still out of your budget, you'll be pleased to hear that kids can enjoy camping or playing in a Tube tent at the much more affordable price of £59.99

The kid's Tube tent also comes complete with its very own ticket office and tunnel.  Adults might just be able to crouch into it as the ticket office section is 100cm high. Although fitting into the train would be more of a challenge as that's only 46cm high and best left to the kids!
