Underground Tube Dinner in the Basement Gallery

When Beardy Fiance and I first started dating, he thought he would impress me by taking me on his dream activity in London: walking around the Thames Barrier.  It was not exactly my ideal day activity (I was far more impressed by the places he took me for dinner.)  So from the beginning, the two of us have not totally agreed on the idea as to what we like to do for fun.

But Beardy Fiance decided to surprise me by making a reservation for a place he thought that we’d both enjoy.  It contained new pop up food (for me) and a cool look at one of London’s retired tube trains (for him.)

The Basement Gallery started as a pop-up in a Brixton basement, before moving down the Victoria line to the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum in order to serve dinner in a 1967 Victoria line train.


He was very excited about the fact that he could still open and close the tube doors.
