UPDATED 23rd Sept:
All tickets are now SOLD OUT and it is highly unlikely that they will let people go in on the day. I am going tomorrow (Friday) and expect to have a report on this blog in the evening. In the meantime, you can see photos from a previous visit I made to the station platforms.
If you like these sorts of things, then why not sign up for my weekly London Event Listings email?
UPDATED 6th Sept:
The tours will last around 45 minutes and will be led by actors portraying 1940s characters – including a spiv and an ARP warden and will offer a glimpse into what life was like for people travelling and sheltering on the Tube during the Blitz.
The station will be dressed to give a wartime feel and atmosphere and outside, at street level, a pre-war RT8 bus will be parked near Aldwych station in Surrey Street.
Tickets cost £8.50
Telephone 020 7565 7298 020 7565 7455 to book from 10am.
UPDATED 4th Sept:
Tickets for the tours of Aldwych Underground station will be released for sale on Tuesday 7 September.
The Evening Standard may have leaked this a day or two early as the LT Museum booking office hasn’t had the full details confirmed yet – but there will be guided tours of the disused Aldwych tube station later this month running from 24th-26th September.
Absolutely no more information is known yet, so don’t bombard the LT Museum for details. As soon as the details are finalised, they will put it on their website, and my auto-tracking systems will alert me to update this blog post.
Nonetheless, the chance to get down into the bowels of this iconic station is one not to be missed – even though I have actually been down there once before.
I wonder if they read my previous blog post about tours of the disused station and will include the tunnels as well *grins*.
The ticket office floor of the station was opened to the public recently, for the Transforming the Tube exhibition.
