Visiting the secret station
A few weeks ago I went on a tour of Aldwych, one of a few stations on the underground network which still exist but are no longer operating (known as ghost stations). The London Transport Museum runs tours a few times a year and they sell out pretty quickly. We got tickets when they were released back in October.
I have a geeky obsession with hidden London and the graphic design and architecture of the tube system so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit a hidden station.
Aldwych has an interesting backstory of being a bit of a white elephant and was eventually closed in 1994. The history and layout of the station has been covered elsewhere in much more depth than I can so I’m just going to present a selection of my best photos from the tour along with a few things that I found interesting.
