See Charing Cross in a different light

Explore the disused spaces of Charing Cross Underground station, go behind closed doors to exclusive areas not accessible to the public, walk under Trafalgar Square and see the London Underground in a different light.

Closed to the public since 1999, the Jubilee line platforms at Charing Cross are now synonymous with movies and TV. This is a unique opportunity to view the sites where blockbuster movies including Skyfall (2011/12) and Paddington (2013), and TV’s 24 (2014) were filmed.
