Question

I understand that London Transport Museum is hoping to continue the success of their hugely popular occasional public tours of the closed underground station at Aldwych by seeking to do the same at other closed stations. Which former stations are being considered and how is this work progressing? I would support this initiative.

I welcome your support for this initiative, and Transport for London is committed to continuing to work with the London Transport Museum to open up more disused underground station spaces through public tours.

We are currently researching options at a number of stations, including Down Street and disused sections of Clapham South and Charing Cross. We expect to be able to make an announcement regarding new tours in the summer.
