Tunnel Trips

A boat trip like no other in London

On the second and fourth Sunday of May to October, and the second and fourth Sunday of May to September, we offer guided tunnel boat trips from the museum through islington Tunnel and back, taking about 50 minutes. Our guide explains the history of the tunnel during the trip. On tunnel trip days the trips leave at 1100 (Sundays only), 1130 (Thursdays only), 1200 (Sundays only), 1230 (Thursdays only), 1400, 1500, and 1600(Sundays only). The 1600 trip returns to the museum after closing time so your museum visit should be before departure. All tickets include museum admission - the boat trip is not available separately. The islington Tunnel is about three quarters of a mile in length so a good deal of the time on board is spent in the tunnel. The price is £8.90 adults, £6.50 children including a museum visit.
