Explore one of London's secret stations

Aldwych station is one of London’s secret places, holding myths and memories of times gone by. Opened to the public in 1907, it was never as heavily used as originally intended and closed nearly 100 years later in 1994.

The station has had a varied history; from providing shelter to Londoners during the Blitz, to being used for film and TV shoots including The ABC Murders (2018), Darkest Hour (2017), Sherlock (2014), and Atonement (2007).

Join our tour and see the one of the former termini of the Piccadilly line– the ticket hall, the original lifts, abandoned platforms and tunnels, and inter-connecting walkways – including some that are very rarely seen by the public.

Aldwych: The end of the line tours will be run on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 18 October and 17 November. To be the first to find out when this tour will go on sale, sign up to our newsletter.

Your ticket price also includes a half-price one day pass to London Transport Museum* and 10% off all Hidden London inspired products at our shop.
