Hi All

Well saved the best till last, this is the LUL station at Charing cross, it no longer has a passenger service but the station is kept in tip top condition, it`s now used for training of LUL staff and also used as a location to try out new signage and other LUL activaties.
The station has also been used to film major motion pictures like "28 months later" and "Skyfall".

You walk in to Charing cross tube station and you turn to the left to access the new station but a bland looking white door leads down to the gem of disused London underground stations.

Off of the main station are a number of passanger tunnels that are now used as air shafts.

You can walk around verious passages and then end up looking down through air grills to the active passenger platforms.
(And if you are a big kid like me you can make ghost noises and watch the people below looking confused)

I thought Charing Cross was still being used..

It is - still serving passengers on the Bakerloo and Northern lines. It is the Jubilee Line, originally planned to go out to Lewisham, that is pictured here. The Jubilee Line operated at Charing Cross from 1979 to 1999 on regular passenger services. As far as LUL is concerned this is a functioning station with a valuable use. The real gems are the many truly abandoned stations - taking into account surface buildings, sub surface structures and tunnels there are over 40 locations to visit - not that there is much to see at some places.
