Aldwych Tube open for exhibition

You'll be able to see some of the disused Aldwych London Underground station for the next two weeks. However, it's only the ticket hall, as it will be displaying a special free exhibition - "
Transforming the Tube".

The exhibition will run from today Monday 28 June until Friday 9 July from 10:00 to 19:00 on weekdays and 10.00 to 16:00 on the weekend.

The entrance to the exhibition is on Surrey Street, WC2R 2NE, which is off the Strand and off Temple Place. Temple is the nearest Tube for this.

Open at last by londonstuff

Aldwych station has been closed for the last 16 years, but is occasionally opened for private parties and corporate events.

Maybe this is a small sign that TfL are receptive to putting closed stations to other uses.

Wonder when the W changed from that font in the picture?

Update - Londonstuff went along on the first day and has pictures and videos here.
