Preserving the Kingsway Exchange Tunnels and their role in history, by giving them a renewed sense of public purpose


An unparalleled project
in Central London

The history of the Tunnels, along with their scale and location at the intersection of London’s West End and the historic Square Mile, could make them one of the most exciting destinations globally. They could also play a key part in helping further bolster the capital’s cultural and heritage offer, attracting up to two million people each year.

Our ambition for The London Tunnels

Preserving the Kingsway Exchange tunnels and the part they played in history, by giving them a renewed sense of public purpose.

Capturing people’s imaginations around the world, while respecting those who live and work in the neighbourhood.

Delivering tangible economic benefits to an area still recovering from the Pandemic.

Ensuring that The London Tunnels can be an experience shared by people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Have your say

Following a series of consultation events with the local community in October 2023, a planning application for the adaptive reuse of the tunnels has been submitted to both the City of London Corporation and the London Borough of Camden.

The planning application can be viewed on the City of London Corporation’s website HERE under the reference number 23/01322/FULMAJ. The London Borough of Camden is yet to register the application on its website however we will update this website once it has done so. The information contained within each application is the same.

Now is your chance to help make this project a reality by sharing your support directly with the councils reviewing these applications before they take a decision on whether to approve the plans later this year. Further details of how to do this can be found at the links listed above.

Our series of consultation events, which enabled people to find out more about our proposal and have their say, took place between 7 – 14 October, 2023.
