Former King Street Underground Station

King William Street was a tube station in London that opened 18th December 1890 and closed 24th February 1900. The station was the northern terminus of the City & South London Railway (now closed). The station was located in London near King William Street.

What's left today:
The original station building was demolished sometime in the 1930s, but the old station was converted into an air-raid shelter during WWII. Today you can acess the station via a manhole in the basement of Regis House (that now occupies the site) this leades to the original iron spiral staircase down to platform level. The old tunnels are also still here today, but when the Jubilee line was extended the old southbound tunnel was cut through for a ventilation shaft.
