13 Abandoned Tube Stations To Be Converted Tourist Attractions In London

Ben | October 7, 2014

The Transport for London (TFL) is inviting companies to transform its abandoned tube stations to something more lucrative for the tourists visiting London.

There are plans of converting these stations to hotels, shops and museums.

At least 40 Over ground and underground stations along with old horse tunnels about 750 of them are not in use.

The TFL is still considering whether to invite construction firms to bid for a single site to begin the project, or for a group of the vacant subterranean spaces.

The stations have been closed due to low passenger numbers and re-routing. The famous station of Aldwych which was used to hide National Gallery’s collection during the First World War and then British Museum artifacts during the Second World War is among the abandoned stations.

After a meeting with the London Mayor, 34 sites have been held suitable for this project. At first 13 sites will be converted to art galleries, nightclubs and, potentially, a National Fire Brigade museum.

There will be no affiliation with the Old London Underground Company said a Tfl spokesperson and they will hold no prejudice ahead of public tender.
