London's abandoned tube station at Charing Cross was closed in 1999 when the city extended the Jubilee Line. The eerie space has since become a firefighter's training ground – and also an excellent movie set.

Join this tour and get into London's weird, wacky, and downright scary side in this city attraction that's off the tourist trail. You won't have to worry about rush hour crowds here.

The abandoned spaces of Charing Cross Underground station wind around Nelson's Column beneath the streets of London. You may recognize spots that set the scene for blockbuster movies such as Skyfall and Paddington, and the television series, 24.

See the silent, motionless escalator that's had a makeover – they removed the ledges in the middle to allow James Bond to slide from the top to the bottom! Without the actors, directors, and clapper boards, it's almost post-apocalyptic down here.
