Tours of the closed Jubilee line station at Charing Cross are once again available to book this November and December.
The station closed in 1999 when the line was extended to Stratford via Canary Wharf and North Greenwich, leaving the short stump to Charing Cross shut to public use.
The line into the platforms are still used to turn back trains. Recently a train did so with passengers on board offering some a free glimpse at the site (they couldn’t get off of course).
There’s a bit about a previous tour at SubBrit.
I still love those other parts of Charing Cross that are normally open, with its 1970s-tastic design when approaching from the railway station.
The station was probably the first tube station I ever visited, and the main one for years as a child. That’s likely to be the case for many in south east London.
It was an adventure to take the train up to Charing Cross then switch to the tube for a day out.
Unfortunately under 14s cannot go on the tour, but you can book by clicking here.
