A tour of London with a difference, Project X is an immersive theatrical experience that takes audiences on a journey of time travel, murder and cryptic clues. With a number of mysterious characters to meet along the way, groups are taken on a pedestrian tour through London Transport Museum, Covent Garden and the surrounding areas. Participants will be given the challenge of solving puzzles, clues and encountering a mysterious future where things aren't what they appear.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
