What you need to know before your trail

Polly, 28, lives in London with her ‘perfect-on-paper’ boyfriend. However, her banal existence is turned upside down late one drunken night on her way home, after a chance encounter with a man on a packed tube train. The chemistry between them is electric and on impulse, they kiss, giving in to their carnal desires. But it’s over in an instant, and Polly is left shell-shocked as he walks away without even telling her his name.

Now obsessed with this beautiful stranger, Polly begins a frantic online search, and finally discovers more about tubing , an underground phenomenon in which total strangers set up illicit, silent, sexual meetings on busy commuter tube trains. In the process, she manages to track him down and he slowly lures her into his murky world, setting up encounters with different men via Twitter.

At first she thinks she can keep it separate from the rest of her life, but things soon spiral out of control.

Travel Guide


From the tube stations of Holborn, the adventure, it would seem, begins…

You will never see the Tube in the same light again! Or any underground trains for that matter. They advise you to take a bottle of water on tubes at the moment when it’s hot – well, you’ll need icepacks and a fire extinguisher with this novel!

” Male hook up with male. Central Line, Holborn westbound train. Third carriage. 7pm. Tonight. Wear green top. #Tubingholborn”

“Male hook up female. Northern line leicester square southbound. Last carriage 11pm #Tubingleicestersquare”

Several tube stations are mentioned as being stations where Tubing takes place. There are also hotspots above ground where couples/strangers can and do hang out. The Cut beside the Old Vic with its bars and dark corners seems to be a popular spot.

Maybe one day there will be display of some kind in here – ltmuseum.co.uk   😉
