Pre-book your Job-A-Knock ticket

Job-A-Knock tickets, which give you a timed slot for your underground tour, are now available to pre-book, at £5 per person, for tours on weekends and during school holidays. You can still visit us without a Job-A-Knock ticket but you might have to wait for an underground tour: Pre-book your ticket
