Boat Trip, River Walk, Tunnel Descent.
This is not just Brunel. It’s a voyage, a walk and a train journey into the birthplace of modern London. Under three Brunel bridges, through Brunel’s tunnel to the best kept secret in London. And into the bargain sightseer’s London checklist, from the Houses of Parliament to the Tower of London. Icons. And secrets. Seven secrets, actually. A secret gateway for the Czar of Russia. Six dead men on a haunted ship. Five famous riverside pubs. Broken bones by the silent Harpy. Broken slipways on the Isle of Dogs. Four white ensigns. Three Brunels. Two Isle of Dogs illuminations. A monster ship, and the world’s most important tunnel where six men died and Brunel met with destiny.
