The First Journey On London’s Underground

Written by: George Chittenden : 22 Jul 2019

This photo was taken on 24th May, 1862, during the first journey on the London Underground. It was taken in Edgware Road Station, more than a year before the line opened.

On board that day were future Prime Minister William Gladstone and his wife, and the engineer John Fowler.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
