So glad, that I got to use Angel Road railway station, before it closed! It closed on 31 May 2019, since then, the platform has already stripped and the footbridge already taken down!

Here are some photos from my visit on 9th May 2019.

Yes, I did tick off London King’s Cross railway station, a long time ago! Way back in 30th November 2002 in fact. But like more others, I always head straight to underground and head into the centre of London. But not this time, for once I walked the other way and went to end of the platforms to get some photos…

That was another great day out in London, with my older brother Douglas. We did so much during, our mini day trip….

We did the following:-

  • London Transport Museum
  • British Museum
  • Science Museum
  • Natural History Museum

Was great doing both the London Transport Museum and the British Museum. Since I had never too them before.

The Science Museum and the Natural History Museum, I had been too before, but not for well over 10 years! So could not really, remember them at all.

That was a great day out in London with my older bother Douglas. Who is down for the week, along with our Mum and Dad. But only Douglas and myself went to London.

While in London, we went to the Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House and also the Thames Barrier. Oh and I also got to tick off another railway station, this time Charlton.

Well OK, I’ve been to, The Thames Barrier before. But not since July 2008! So it was getting seeing it again, some 11 years later… At least, I was not wearing Lycra this time… LOL! 🙂

So pleased, I’ve ticked this one off my list! Since Angel Road railway station is due to close later this month.

In 2016/17 it was the least-used station in London, with an estimated 33,500 passenger entries/exits.

It will close on 19 May 2019. All services will switch to the new station at Meridian Water. So visit it, while you can!!

At long, long last… I’ve been back to Abbey Wood railway station! Not used that station in well over 10 years! Can’t believe how much it’s changed since my last visit! Of course, I will need to go back again, when Crossrail opens!

WOW! I did the Charing Cross – Access All Areas tour, while in London today! It’s got to be, one of best things you can do in London! So great fun seeing parts of Charing Cross underground station, that the public don’t normally get to see!

The parts of the station you get to see have been closed to the public since 1999.

The Jubilee line platforms at Charing Cross are now synonymous with films and television. They have been used for films including Skyfall (2011/12) and Paddington (2013), and TV’s 24 (2014).

Check out www.ltmuseum.co.uk/whats-on/hidden-london/charing-cross. Right now, they are still some tickets for sale. But, they will sell out fast!
