The city’s secrets revealed at the @ltmuseum

When we talk about ‘secret London’ we usually mean a coffee shop where you effectively pay the wages (because you’re the only one who knows about it) or a cinema experience like no other. But not this time. This week the London Transport Museum launched ‘Secret London’, a series of events exploring the world of underground London, in every sense of the phrase. There’s an exhibition featuring the best 50 entrants of The Serco Prize for Illustration 2012 who have interpreted the brief of Secret London in every way imaginable. From displays of facts and figures to complex dense compositions, the wonderfully absurd to the cute and simple, all of the illustrations attempt to reveal a hidden side to the city. The exhibition is open until December 10 and alongside it there’ll be tours of abandoned tube stations and secretive talks. Carly-Ann Clements
