At present, visitors enter the huge underground chamber through half height doorway, over flood protection wall and down temporary scaffolding to a floor suspended above the railway. A new doorway will give level access, through landscaped gardens, to a new exhibition, gallery and performance space.
State of the art interpretation will reveal the site as birthplace of the tube system and world city, as well as Scheduled Ancient Monument. The concert hall and theatre space will inspire artists, musicians and engineers alike. Once again the chamber will be a palace of engineering, entertainment and education, as it was in Brunel’s day see more.
