Learn About The Underground

Baker Street Tour at the London Transport Museum

Ever wondered what the Tube used to look like? Baker Street was London’s first Underground station when it opened in 1863. Today, the London Transport Museum launches a new tour in which visitors can explore closed-off parts of the station including original platforms, disused lift shafts and hidden corridors. You’ll hear what the Victorians thought of the first underground network, how it expanded over the decades, and how Baker Street served passengers and London Underground staff. Tickets cost £44; meet the tour in front of the Sherlock Holmes statue outside Baker Street Station.

Prepare For Kick Off

The Rugby Tavern

The Rugby World Cup kicks off in Paris on Friday. Our pick of where to watch the action? The Rugby Tavern, a historic pub in Bloomsbury once owned by Lawrence Sheriff, the founder of the prestigious Rugby School – and the birthplace of the sport itself. Over the next six weeks the pub will screen every single match. Meet your mates and order craft beers and dishes from the bar – we like the sound of the posh sausages with mash and red wine gravy. First up? France vs New Zealand on Friday night.
