London Transport Museum

Hidden London: the Exhibition, is an immersive journey through forgotten parts of the Tube network that have been either abandoned or re-purposed. We spent the best part of a year down abandoned tunnels and trawling through decommissioned railway equipment to create the exhibition. This temporary show occupied the museum’s Global gallery and was spread over two floors connected by a spiral staircase. The build is a mixture of film and audio installations, 3D graphics, set painting, dirt, ivy and original props. We also created an officially sanctioned London Underground map of disused stations. The design houses many artefacts from London Transport Museum’s collection including artworks by John Buckland Wright, Frank Dobson and Lee Miller. Originally intended to run for a year, due to its popularity the show was extended for further year and an half.

*WINNER* – Best Temporary / Touring Exhibition of the year.

“We love a well-designed exhibition, and this is ​London Transport Museum’s best yet.” The Londonist ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

“I admit to feeling like I am illegally breaking in at the London Transport Museum’s ‘Hidden London’ exhibition, so brilliantly have they recreated the feeling of an abandoned Tube station.” Tincture of Museum
