This guided tour will take you into Charing Cross Underground station to see some of the disused spaces that are not accessible to the public.

You'll get to walk under Trafalgar Square and see the old Jubilee line platforms which are no longer used for trains. These days they play host to TV and movie shoots for things like Skyfall, 24 and Paddington Bear.
