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.

Bear in mind that you will have to walk down some stairs. There is no lift. You will also be required to wear appropriate footwear.

Craig’s review of Thames Clippers Some days you just want to sit in a boat until the river runs dry... have it keep floating until there's nothing left to float on. That's why God invented these Thames Clippers. These boats have got the longest routes in London: from Putney all the way up to North Greenwich… continued
