However much we might moan about the awfulness of our commutes, there’s no denying Londoners’ collective affection for the city’s underground railway, and we can’t seem to get enough when it comes to its history. Love it or hate it, the Tube makes trainspotters of us all.

London’s Transport Museum is offering a Tube trip back in time aboard genuine, Art Deco rolling-stock this weekend, with a heritage outing called ‘Journey to Metro-Land’. As the oldest of the lines and the first underground railway in the world, the Metropolitan Line is awash with history, and we can expect plenty of thirties-themed nostalgia along the way.

‘Metro-Land’ refers to a the marketing term coined in the early 20th Century; an attempt to define an identity for the suburban areas the line still serves today. The journey to Amersham will pass through its heartlands at Harrow-on-the-Hill and Watford, with tickets available on five different route options.

With performances from close harmony trio the Susie Q’s and a team of swing dancers to welcome passengers on their arrival, we’re expecting plenty of vintage vibes. Period dress-up is encouraged, and for those in no hurry to return to 2018, an oldy worldy bus has been laid on to take passengers to the Amersham heritage fair.
