Charing Cross Station Tour

Read reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 based on 1 Feefo user ratings.

In partnership with the London Transport Museum / Hidden London we are delighted to be able to offer an exclusive behind-the-scenes Charing Cross Station Tour. The tour of the London Underground Station features spots regularly seen on screen and stands in for a working tube station.

On this Charing Cross Station Tour, you’ll see the empty platforms, tunnels and escalators of this now empty station and visit areas not accessible to the general public.

Although it has been closed to the general public since 1999 productions to have used this station include the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, Thor 2The Bourne Ultimatum and it was also seen in the first episode of Series 3 of BBC’s Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. In the second series of Killing Eve a scene was filmed on the platform with Eve (Sandra Oh).

Please note:

  • There are 20 places available on each Charing Cross Station tour.
  • Access to the tour is by static escalator only, and there is no step-free access.
