The Thames Tunnel Shaft

The Thames Tunnel Shaft is a huge underground chamber, half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe, directly above the railway. Before the trains came, the shaft echoed with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders performing in the tunnel. Now the shaft is a unique and stunning concert venue. Time Out listed the shaft as one of ‘London’s magical music venues’ and Radio 4 described it as an ‘underground cathedral’ .

The Brunel Museum

In the autumn and winter months concerts take place in the intimate setting of the museum itself. The museum has a wonderful acoustic, a lovely Bechstein grand piano and a welcoming bar!
