The Wonderpass is now open
We’re delighted that our vision for transforming the bleak Marylebone Road Subway into a Wonderpass has now become a reality. This crossing that connects Baker Street Station opposite to South Marylebone Road was in real need to love and attention. This idea was born from a real desire to improve the subway which was a poor impression of our great area. Gone are the wet puddles, poor lighting and dingy grey concrete. Say hello to a vibrant cultural crossing that’s a true celebration of our area’s history and attractions.
The project is a great example of a community collaboration project with our ideas, funding from TfL and Westminster City Council ward councillors, and production from Sing London. With the design featuring work from the Wallace Collection, Madame Tussauds and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre the Wonderpass has truly brought the best of our area together.
Thank you for your patience whilst the works were in progress. Not just a pretty paint job, major structural works have taken place to upgrade the space. Drainage and leaks have been repaired, the electrics and lighting have been completely replaced and improved, so too have the stairwells, floors and handrails. All the artwork is durable, easy to clean and maintain to ensure it will remain looking fresh and inviting.
We hope you can pay the Wonderpass a visit and check it out for yourself. We’re confident you’ll love it.
Please note, overnight gating of the Wonderpass will mean that it is locked each night between 20:30 and 6:00.
