A few months ago I saw that the London Transport measeum where offering tours of Awdych tube station so I managed to book me and S a couple of tickets before they sold out.
Awdych is one of the many abandoned tube stations on the London Underground network and which you don’t often get the chance to visit.
The tour started at the booking hall where we were told about the stations history and ultimate downfall. We then descended the 120 stairs down to the bottom of the lift shaft. We then looked around the lift shafts before proceeding to the platform level and the first of the platforms at the station.
We also saw the second platform which was used as a storage area for actifacts during the war, had a look at the tunnels beyond the station (to protect against trains missing the station from derailing). We then finally saw some of the unfineshed tunnels from the lift to the platform.
