    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:

    Yeah, it might have been closed since 1994 but it's definitely been open for events from time to time.

    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.

    :D

    I'd be up for an outing, but not sure if it's a particularly 'outing' thing. Not sure what makes me think that though :confused:

    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! :(

    vogonity Hmm...!

    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.

    Cheers for the feedback.

    Does sound very good. :(

    (((Onket)))

    I'm sure there'll be another exhibition there soon!:)

    Actually, I'm not sure at all, but I remain optimistic.

    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.

    More info and a link to the booking page here

    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.

    Aldwych has probably made more for LUL from films etc than it ever did from passenger use
