Aldwych Underground Station (Formally Strand Underground Station), London, England

This is another one from my Aldwych Underground station tour. Sadly I did not get as many images that I wanted here due to the short tour time however as soon as those tickets go on sale again next year I will get them and go back and get the images that I didn't get this time round.

This is the Western Platform and is in stark contrast to the Eastern platform (see yesterdays upload). When we went on this platform we were greeted with this and were lucky enough to have the tube train stabled here I was very happy with a tube train here as it adds a very nice perspective to the image here.

This part of the station is often used for staff training and filming for big blockbusters like Creep and 28 Weeks Later. This has the detailed and intricate tiles on the ceiling however bizarrely they only tiled it 3/4 of the platform. When I quizzed the tour guide on it he said it had always been like that because when the station was operational that part of the platform was never used. Some of the posters you see here are left overs from recent films so sadly are not part of the originality of the platform unlike its counterpart, the Eastern platform where you can see relics of old posters scattered around the platform.

Again I had to wait to get this image but so happy that I did as next time I go the tube train may not be there again. I could have spent all day down here in this Underground station ;-).
