If you’ve ever wanted to see behind the scenes at the Crossrail works, the doors are being thrown open for one weekend.
As part of the Open House London weekend on September 20 and 21, members of the public can enjoy tours of three of the network’s sites, including the new Canary Wharf station.
Built in a former dock, visitors can see the new ticket hall and platforms which will pass thousands of people every day when it opens in 2018.
There will also be the chance to see the retail development and roof garden above the station, which are due to be completed next year.
Farringdon Station and Moorgate construction sites will also be open to the public as part of the weekend, which will see more than 800 buildings and sites open for public viewing.
Crossrail tours can be booked via eventbrite.co.uk from September 1.
