Visiting the abandoned Aldwych Tube Station




Aldwych Tube Station, one of London's 18 "ghost stations", stayed open from 1907 till 1994 when it shut down due to low passenger numbers. The station reopened recently for weekend tours given by the London Transport Museum

Guests got a chance to see first hand the station that was home to storage for the National Gallery during World War I and to the Elgin marbles during the Blitz, UK's bombing by Germany during World War II. 

The station, has also been used as the setting for scenes for various movies and TV programs including V for Vendetta and Atonement

  1. Cool to see that in the light - I went to a fantastic 1930s themed party there when I was at Uni - it was a great venue!
