Visit to the London Underground Ltd Headquarters with Edmund Bird, Heritage Advisor to the GLA & TfL

The London Underground Ltd headquarters at 55 Broadway was designed by Charles Holden as the headquarters of the Underground Electric Railways of London and was built over St James’s Park underground station. It was London’s tallest building and its austere facades are decorated with sculpture commissioned from the leading figures of the day, including Epstein, Gill and Moore. The stylish interiors are lined with travertine with ample use of bronze in the light fittings, staircase balusters and lifts.
