If you’re heading to London and fancy taking in a tour with a difference, you can now visit the world’s first underground farm. The fully-working Growing Underground farm is located 33 metres beneath the busy streets of Clapham, in the abandoned tunnels of a former World War II air raid shelter.

Growing Underground uses hydroponic systems and LED technology to grow micro greens and salad leaves all year round. Because the crops are grown underground, they are not affected by the weather and changing seasons (and they’re pesticide free).

Their produce is now stocked in major supermarkets and used by top chefs, and thanks to their prime location, they are in a position to reduce the food miles for local retailers and consumers.
