Those of you who know me will probably know that I'm fascinated (perhaps even a little obsessed if I'm honest) with the London Underground. I find the history of it fascinating and in particular I love the disused stations. These empty, or at least seemingly empty, places dotted all over the network and all the hidden history they hold is something I'm incredibly interested in. For years I've wanted to go on a tour of one of those that do get opened up to the public and I finally got the chance to join a tour around the former Aldwych tube station over the summer. I'm not going to lie I was super excited about this (having booked it months in advance) and as the day finally approached couldn't stop thinking about the fact I was actually getting to visit one.
