Down Street Station, London, W1

Down Street in Mayfair was a tube station between 1907 and 1932 when it was closed due to lack of passengers; the locals clearly too posh to use public transport.  During WW2 it was used for cabinet meetings prior to work being completed on the Cabinet War Rooms under Whitehall.  When the Cabinet moved out it was taken over by the Railway Executive Committee who ran the movement of goods and people from this safe bunker.

TfL would like to let the space but in the meantime they are running tours revealing to the public for the first time how life was in this illustrious but secret station.  If you fancy a tour find your credit card and book HERE.

A wider history of the station can be found HERE.
