Twenty-years ago a tube station closed to passenger traffic, and apart from the occasional film crew or tours is largely off-limits to the general public.

Next January, the public will be let back into Aldwych tube station for guided tours led by the Transport Museum.

Tours will take in the ticket hall, abandoned platform tunnels, and inter-connecting walkways – including some that have very rarely been seen by the public.

Tours will run from 22nd January through to 15th February.

Tickets will go on general sale from Monday 27th October, and will cost £25. Adults only — no children under the age of 16 on the tour this time.

Access to the platform is by staircase only, there is no working lift in operation. 160 steps connect the ticket hall level to the platform level – there is no step-free access.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Would love to see the ‘Aldwych’ one more time! Was a Train Driver on the Piccadilly line back in the late 60’s early 70’s. Many shifts completed on the shuttle, afraid I live Stateside no, and haven’t been back to London for about 8 years. Hopefully you’ll still be doing them in the future. Would love to reminis many happy times.
