"As the world's first underground transport system, the London Underground changed the world when it first opened in 1863. A lot has changed since then and this fascinating walking tour traces the history of the Tube, from one of the earliest stations to some of its most modern. Along the way you'll hear stories of haunted stations, discover how the network was built and even visit the exterior of an original, and now abandoned, station. Just make sure you don't stand on the left of the escalator. There are fewer ways to irritate a Londoner..."
