    In the N64 game "Shadowman", one of the levels is set in Down Street, the tube where the war cabinet had their base in WWII. The game developers were allowed in to take photos and notes and the level is pretty accurate, apart from in real life there's no zombie dogs or Jack the Ripper.

    Over the years , have had the pleasure of meetings in there - couple of times in the Boardroom - fabulous ambience of panelled walls and art deco :)

    A real gem of a building

    I see bits of it are being specially opened up again, and it ain't cheap! :eek:
    Hidden London - London Transport Museum

    Euston tunnels and Clapham South and Charing Cross are all sold out.
    At time of writing, tickets still remaining for Down Street at just £85 per head :facepalm::thumbs:

    Possibly. I knew some of this stuff has been covered before; closed stations Etc.
    Also, not many tickets left and just so expensive.

    This site has good photos of all kinds of tube stuff including closed stations. The best pics of British Museum station I've seen yet.

    It was a great tour of Down Street tube station last night, Joe and Paul the two main tour guides were exactly as you would expect them to be in their love, knowledge, enthusiasm
    for the Tube and the way they told the stories. The slight down side was it focused too much on Churchill and the war for us; but hey, to be thoroughly recommended.
    The big question of the day was mustard yellow or sunshine yellow? :)
