This abandoned Underground station is now being used as a Hollywood film set — take a look inside

  • Business Insider UK took a tour inside the abandoned part of London’s Charing Cross Underground station.
  • The station used to service the Jubilee line, but the platform providing the line was closed in 1999.
  • It is now used to film Hollywood movies, providing scenes for Matt Damon’s “Bourne Ultimatum” and Daniel Craig’s “Skyfall.”

Business Insider was given a tour of the abandoned part of London’s  Charing Cross Underground station.

The station – which provides the Northen and Bakerloo line – once served the Jubilee line, but the platform was closed in 1999 after an extension was built that completely bypassed the station.

The platforms are now used for various forms of training by different organisations – including the fire brigade and the police – and public tours from the museum. 

Hollywood movies are also filmed in the station, providing scenes for the Bourne Ultimatum and Skyfall.

We were also given access to the station’s service tunnel and ventilation shaft.

Produced and filmed by David Ibekwe and Leon Siciliano. Special Thanks to Transport for London
