London Transport Museum, the world's leading museum of urban transport, invites you to take an exclusive Hidden London tour and explore Shepherd’s Bush station, which opened in 1900 as the Western terminus of the brand-new Central London Railway. The railway was pioneering as it cut through the centre of London and provided a transport link between London’s Western suburbs and the City of London. From Shepherd’s Bush, passengers could catch a tram to take them even further on one ticket, making it West London’s most important transport hub in the early 20th century. The station has gone through several upgrades and renovations, so much so that today it is almost unrecognisable from the original. But behind closed doors and grilles, the old station corridors and lift shafts are still there, waiting to be explored. You’ll get to visit one of the best examples of the original Central line design features, learn about the line’s history as the third deep Tube railway to be built in London, see the brilliant engineering behind cooling the famously warm line and how those same passageways were used in unexpected ways 80 years ago.
