(£15 per person – includes copy of the Brunels’ Tunnel guidebook; 90 minutes approx.)
The Brunel Museum is hosting a series of special talks and viewings at the London Metropolitan Archives where we will display our beautiful collection of Marc Brunel’s watercolours, sketches and early designs of the Thames Tunnel.
In 2017, the Brunel Museum acquired an amazing collection of designs and watercolours of the Thames Tunnel produced by Marc Brunel, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and various other draftsmen and engineers involved at the time.
With over 30 individual drawings in the set, ranging from small pen-and-ink sketches of the tunnelling machinery to enormous lithograph prints of the entire tunnel, they are an integral part of the Thames Tunnel story.
Our expert guides will be on hand to tell you more about their unique history and how the Thames Tunnel itself came to be known as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’.
The next talks and viewings are on:
Friday 6th October, 10:30am (at London Metropolitan Archives, Huntley Room)
Friday 8th December, 10:30am (at London Metropolitan Archives, Huntley Room)
