The London Underground Tube Tent is a Perfect Party Tent for the Summer Olympics

From treehouse tents to geodesic dome tents, we’re all about portable shelters here at Inhabitat, so with the Olympics kicking off later this week we were pretty excited to come across this jumbo tent that’s shaped like a train in the London Underground. The tent is an exact replica of a car on the Northern Line, and it’s big enough to accommodate an actual trainload of people — it sleeps up to 20 but can fit as many as 72 people. A night in the tent will cost you more than a ride on the Underground, though; the tent retails for a whopping $3,100 (£1,999), and it costs a minimum of $775 (£500) to rent.

    This isn’t just a London Underground tent: it’s a “tube” tent!
