This isn’t just Brunel, it’s a voyage – and a walk – into the birthplace of modern London. So yes, under three Brunel bridges and over two Brunels’ tunnels to the best kept secret in London. And into the bargain a sightseer’s London checklist, from the Houses of Parliament to the Tower of London. Icons. And that secret. Several secrets, actually. A secret gateway for the Czar of Russia. Six men dead on a haunted ship. Broken bones by the silent Harpy. Broken slipways on the Isle of Dogs. Shattered columns, shattered dancers, magic at the Tunnel Club. Mind-melting magic. Outcroppings of the past that haven’t been swallowed by the passage of time. That tell of the monster ship. And of the world’s most important tunnel. That more than tell. That take us down into the darkness where men died and Brunel met with destiny. N.B. Oyster or 2-Zone Travel Card recommended for our short train journey. There’s an extra charge for the boat but we get you a rate. And there’s no queuing – our tickets are reserved! The Brunel Museum gratefully acknowledges Heritage Lottery Fund support in developing these tours.
