This evening the shutters will be pulled across the old entrance at Tottenham Court Road tube station for the last time, as they prepare to switch the station around and start using a shiny new entrance next week.
The station is closed over the weekend, so today is the last time you could walk down those stairs and along the weirdly curving corridor.
Just a few photos:
The old entrance
The shiny new entrance, with escalators direct from street level
Old and new side-by-side
A fond old staircase
The hypnotic tunnel soon to be no more.
Hopefully no werewolves involved this time.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
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.
