London Underground Tube Tent

For those who love camping or want a Northern Line carriage all to themselves TfF that's Transport for Firebox has arranged for you to take the Tube to your next holiday or weekend break.  Graeme found this excellent London Underground Tube tent on
Firebox, which is topically described "Considering the imminent arrival of armies of hyper-active athletes, and rampaging hordes of tourists for a certain upcoming sporting event, it’s a great time to think about getting out of town."

The tent may not be the cheapest of camping options, at almost two grand, but it does sleep 16 people and can hold 72 people standing for parties, so if you all club together becomes more affordable.

Firebox have a video on the site on the tent being put together and apparently takes less time than it takes to get to Morden from High Barnet.

Features include
  • 7 zip-separated compartments
  • 2 side doors and a drivers door
  • Doors open, just like on the original
  • Fly sheet doors separate inner compartments 
For the "authentic commuter experience" you can "share your tent with 71 strangers".  It's also pointed out that "You can even get in through the drivers door! A rare treat."
