Description
Hidden in plain sight between the stations of Hyde Park Corner and Green Park, Down Street is one of London’s hidden underground stations, subterranean tunnels frozen in time. After a short-lived life as a working station from 1907 to 1932, Down Street was closed and selected for use as an underground bunker in 1939.

Join the London Transport Museum on a 90-minute tour of Down Street Station, closed to the public for over 85 years. An essential tool in the war effort during the Second World War, it was converted in to the Railway Executive Committee’s bomb-proof headquarters to ensure the war effort could be powered day and night.

Adventure through the closed platforms and explore the tunnels, listening to the trains rush past on the Piccadilly Line filled with unknowing passengers.
