To mark Deaf Awareness Week, TfL will hold two Art on the Underground tours on 13 June, exclusively to hearing impaired customers.

The tours, co-led by Art on the Underground and a British Sign Language interpreter, will showcase some of the most well-known artworks in Tube stations across London.

The tours will also provide an opportunity to learn about the services TfL provides for hearing impaired customers, including travel mentors, who will be on hand to answer questions.

The first tour will start at award-winning British artist Heather Phillipson’s ambitious 80 metre long installation at Gloucester Road, leading through to John Maine’s Portland stone commission at Green Park station.

It will finish at Piccadilly Circus station with Langlands & Bell’s “Beauty < Immortality” – a homage to visionary former London Transport Chief Executive Frank Pick, whose legacy of iconic designs has had a profound influence on the appearance of London Underground.
