Two disused tube stations that have never been part of the disused tube station tours ware to be part of a new series of virtual video tours from the London Transport Museum.
The programme covers virtual tours of two stations that are even more secret than the regular tours previously offered: King William Street and Brompton Road. Both sites have very restricted access, so it will never be possible to offer conventional public tours.
Hence, zoom-based tours instead.
The tours last 90 minutes and cost £30 per laptop attending.

Located between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations on the Piccadilly line, Brompton Road station was closed in 1934 after the Piccadilly line was extended. It was closed along with stations such as Down Street and York Road as they were only lightly used – with some services passing through without stopping.
Learn about its time as a Second World War bunker and see what the disused station looks like today.
King William Street
King William Street station has the honour of being the first disused deep tube station.
Closed in 1900, King William Street was the original but short-lived northern terminus of the City and South London Railway, which was the first deep-level underground railway in the world. The CSLR, which originally ran from King William Street to Stockwell now form part of the Bank Branch of the Northern line.
Currently, this station is being used as part of the Bank station upgrade project.
Zoom in for this behind the scenes virtual tour to see what the disused station looks like today and find out how it is being used during the Bank project.
