November Date : Chance to go inside a disused tube station
Of the closed tube stations that litter the London Underground, two top the list of stations that people want to visit.
One is Down Street, near Hyde Park as it was used as a WW2 command centre, and the other is the iconic Aldwych/Strand station, which is largely unmodernised.
In November, you can get into Aldwych — as it has a series of occasional open days.
Although only closed in 1994, it holds a special fascination for most people as it is still visible above ground, and even when open was hardly ever used so even the heaviest of tube travellers are unlikely to have been there.
It is also one of those stations that has a dual hidden history, as even when open, only one of two platforms was in use – so you have one old platform, and one even older one.”
