Aldwych station was originally opened in 1907 but a lack of travellers forced it to close down in 1994.

This tour will take you on a walk through the old ticket hall, abandoned platforms and even into some of the tunnels -- many of which are very rarely seen by the public.

You will also learn some of its interesting history, like when it acted as a bomb shelter during the Blitz, and played host to movie shoots for films such as Darkest Hour, Sherlock and Atonement.
