This watch you are wanting at is wanting back from Wapping Station close towards Rotherhithe Station.

Being a significant admirer of architecture I had to take a look at this tunnel as it could be decades ahead of its open up to the community all over again, if not at any time! The tickets marketed out really speedily and the key purpose why its open up to the community is simply because there was engineering get the job done on the East London Line so it was a excellent possibility to open up the tunnel to the community.
