Aldwych Underground Station - Haunted History

The former entrance to Strand Station.

London, London

Aldwych Station was originally opened in 1907, it acted as an off-shoot of the Piccadilly Line to Holborn. The station closed due to falling passenger numbers in 1994.

Since then the line has been kept in working order so that it can be used as a film location. It has appeared in many TV shows, sometimes as Aldwych but often as a fictional station.

One television show that visited for the station's paranormal activity was 'Most Haunted'. In the 2002 episode, medium Derek Acorah made contact with a ghost called Margaret.

It's believed she is the spirit of an actress who performed in the Royal Strand Theatre, which originally occupied the site of the station. Her ghost has been spotted by many passengers and London Underground staff over the years.
