London Transport Museum offers rare opportunity for visitors to tour one of London’s lost ‘ghost’ stations in central London.

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- One of London's secret ‘ghost' underground stations will reopen for a short time in a new immersive event organised by the London Transport Museum this September. Aldwych station, a branch of the Piccadilly Line, has been closed for decades but still opens occasionally for special events such as Lost & Found: A Secret Underground Journey, a theatrical tour that will allow visitors a rare look inside an abandoned station. Aldwych station is on The Strand, a short walk from Charing Cross, where many of London's biggest central London hotels are located. Visitors looking for hotels near Charing Cross, should book through LondonTown.com, where they will find the best bargains on London hotel rooms.

September's interactive experience will re-imagine the 150 year history of the London Underground by taking visitors on an hour-long journey through the ticket hall and down onto the platforms during an experience that will combine film, audio and interactive installations to tell the fascinating stories of forgotten characters, people and places. The tour will celebrate the past, present and future of the London Underground, and in particular Aldwych Station.

Visitors will be able to enjoy key moments in the 150 year history of the Tube, discover the well-preserved architectural features of Aldwych station and learn about the pioneering technology and engineering that has been such a feature of the Underground since it began. The show will last 1 hour and 15 minutes and run on Tuesdays to Sundays with ticket prices ranging from £20 to £30. Ticket price includes a single entry ticket to the Museum in Covent Garden, valid for one month. For information on other events organised by the London Transport Museum to celebrate the 150 th anniversary of the tube, see LondonTown.com, London's best website for tourist information.
