This is the first time I've been to central station found the staff very helpful and the underground was a delight especially for two country bumpkins like us. Amazing experience. Hope to do it again soon.

This tour was absolutely excellent, the guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. It is super value for money and I hope to go back to see the area recreated and with its own museum. Couldn’t recommend this highly enough.

Visited this 50 odd years ago and returned this Easter. Sent shivers up my spine. What a quality building this place is. Love the hanging clock and the "shells".

Old fashioned Art style station with modern parts, well worth going early to see the old fashioned architecture and buildings.
