Aldwych Station Tour

Read reviews
Rated 4.2 out of 5 based on 34 Feefo user ratings.

In partnership with the London Transport Museum / Hidden London,  Brit Movie Tours is delighted to offer an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the London Underground Station that features regularly on screen and stands in for a working tube station.

Aldwych station is a fascinating location with a rich and varied history.  It opened to the public in 1907, never reached its planned potential and eventually closed in 1994.

Here is a rare opportunity to take a tour of the now disused Aldwych Underground station in the Strand.  Led by expert guides, you will be able to see the ticket hall, the original lifts, abandoned platforms and inter-connecting walkways – including some that have very rarely been seen by the public.

The station provided shelter to Londoners during the Blitz and also starred in its own right in productions including The Darkest Hour, Superman IVThe KraysPatriot GamesV for VendettaThe Good ShepherdAtonement28 Weeks LaterMr SelfridgeSherlock, Stan & Ollie, SS-GB, Temple and much more.

Aldwych Station Tours are available on a very limited basis.  Dates are released a few weeks in advance and tickets will then be released on a first-come-first-served basis.
