The Booking office


Tickets have been sold from 3 locations within Aldwych station. the original locations were two ticket windows that can justr be made out in the background of this picture.

Close-up showing one of the original ticket windows. With a smaller than expected number of passengers the ticket office closed and tickets were then sold by the lift atendant.

During the 1980's London Underground moved to equip the station with barriers, and so reopened a ticket office, not in the original location, because this area is now a switch room, but on a raft above the central lift shaft. The design of the window is clearly in the style of the originals.
