Here’s Your Chance To Explore London’s Abandoned Tube Stations

TfL’s ‘Hidden London’ tours of sealed-off tube stations return next year, and tickets go on sale this Friday.

The good people from the London Transport Museum are once again hosting exclusive, private tours of the tube network’s hidden bits. These Hidden London tours only happen very rarely, so read carefully if you want to take part.

Discover the mile of deep-level bomb shelters beneath Clapham South station; wander the labyrinth of dark and dusty passageways of Euston’s “lost tunnels”; or visit the disused parts of Charing Cross station where Skyfall was filmed, before heading over to the London Transport Museum’s Cubic Theatre to enjoy an exclusive screening of the film, with a Martini in hand (shaken not stirred obviously).

Returning to the Hidden London roster this autumn is Aldwych station, which has had a second life as a film set since being closed in 1994. Above ground, the team are also hosting tours of the former TfL headquarters in ‘London’s first skyscraper’ at 55 Broadway.

Tours will take place in the summer and, although they’re jolly expensive, tickets will probably go like hot cakes anyway. Subscribe to London Transport Museum’s newsletter if you want priority access to tickets – you’ll be sent a booking link on Thursday March 7 at 10am, 24 hours before the rest of the public. General tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday March 8.
