It is now two years old but still feels very new. This is a walking tour of a selection of the central area Elizabeth Line stations, travelling on the line between them.

Most stations have two entrances, and we will walk overground between some of the entrances discovering the station architecture, adjacent commercial and residential developments and public realm. Below ground we will see the design features that make this line such an excellent example of twenty first century public urban transport.

Individual audioguides will be provided and the group size is limited to twenty. 

Please note that you will need a travelcard or contactless card. We will be entering and leaving four different Zone 1 stations. All are fully accessible.
