Disused Aldwych tube station, London - tours

London Underground is opening the doors of the old Aldwych Underground station, closed to the public since 1994, for a special exhibition in the ticket hall, to show how the Tube is being transformed.

The exhibition will take place from Monday 28 June to Friday 9 July from 10:00 to 19:00 on weekdays and 10.00 to 16:00 on the weekend. The entrance to the exhibition is on Surrey Street, WC2R 2NE, which is off the Strand and off Temple Place, with Temple station the closest Tube station.
More details from Ian Visits and TFL.

I work just down the road from Aldwych and while you don't get to go all over the station I'm stupidly excited about this :cool:

Pretty sure I applied for tickets to a film showing in there once. Wasn't succesful.

I've wanted to see in there for years. Work just around the corner, too. Will definitely pay it a visit.

I wish I'd seen this thread sooner! I was at the Edgar Wallace, which is just around the corner from there, last week too! :(

Hmm...!
Did anyone go?
I did. It was an enjoyable interactive exhibition, like an extension on the LT Museum, based around the future of the Tube.

Future station models... Future tube carriages... Loved that!

Also good to root around the station's old features, like the lifts and rooms. (The last time I was there was for an Artangel exhibiton, which used other areas.)

Good stuff all round.
 
I thought there was a thread on these already but I couldn't find it so anyway...

The LT Museum are running more tours of the closed Aldwych tube station. Always popular and sold out in the past, but there are plenty of tours between 7th and 30 November.

Thanks for the heads up. This year, I might even get there. :)
 
Very tempting but £25 per head is rather steep... Might have to give it a miss.
I agree but a ticket does give entry to the LT Museum too which is normally £15 (and you get 10% off in the museum shop) so if you want to go there as well, it seems more reasonable.
