Visit to Crossrail - WhitechapelBook Now

Event Code:RSF0025
Description:
When:
07 July 2018, 10:00 - 13:00
Where: Whitechapel station, London E1 1BY
Meeting Point: TBC

At the kind invitation of Crossrail, we have secured two alternative visits to two of the brand-new central London stations:

Farringdon (Friday 15th June) or Whitechapel (Saturday 7th July) 

As places are limited for both events we are keen for as many people as possible to benefit from these tours therefore please choose between the two stations available.

Whitechapel is one of the ten brand-new central London stations, and has been designed with its own distinct character to reflect the environment and legacy of the local area.  

We anticipate this to be a popular visit therefore please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. As names need to be sent to Crossrail prior to the event, booking will close on Thursday 5th July. 

Please note the following:

1. We will send participant names to Crossrail in advance 
2. Access will be by stairs; escalators MAY be available but every visitor will need to be able to use stairs – lifts will not be available.
3. No PPE kit will be required

This is a unique opportunity for a much-in-demand visit to one or other of Crossrail’s key London stations. Celebrating the near-completion of Europe’s largest infrastructure construction project also fits very well with the new aims and plans for the newly-created CILT/RSF partnership.
