From 7th May, the tours will delve deep into London’s history. You’ll be able to explore the World War II shelter below Clapham South, which has since been used to house Caribbean migrants in 1948 and sneaky visitors to the Festival of Britain in 1951. They’re also taking guests into the disused Down Street station, on the Piccadilly Line, where Prime Minister Winston Churchill held cabinet war meetings and took refuge during the Blitz.
