Celebrate 50 Years of the Victoria Line at the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum

On 1st September 1968 the Victoria line, the world’s first automatic underground railway, was opened between Walthamstow Central and Highbury & Islington. The museum will be holding a special event over the weekend of 1st-2nd September 2018 to celebrate this important transport achievement.

During the weekend the museum’s two original cut-down Victoria line cars, which have been undergoing restoration, will be available for viewing by the public for the first time.

In addition to the museum’s gallery displays and fire station, there will be special displays for the event, including vintage buses & cars, model displays and underground railway layouts.

The museum’s café and bookshop will be open throughout the weekend.

Free parking will be available in nearby Essex Road and limited parking in Low Hall Lane.

Admission to the event is completely FREE. The museum will be open between 11am and 4pm on both days.
