Some very excellent photography and information, thank you. I have explored metro systems all over the world, and each has its appeal, but the London Underground was my first and will always be special to me.

The Tube has something special about it. Maybe because it's a classic, it's the oldest one.

Charing Cross station - Northern/Bakerloo Lines

Does anyone know which tube station was prominently featured in the movie An American Werewolf in London ?

I believe it was Aldwych, a now closed station that existed on a little stub of the Piccadilly Line. It was served by a shuttle service to and from Holborn.

I think it's been used for a lot of filming where a tube station has been required for a scene.

Although it's true that Adlwych is used a lot for filming (as is W&C Bank I believe), according to "London Film Location Guide" (James,2007) It was Tottenham Court Road. Of course it could just be masquerading as that station.

Aldwych features in the horror movie Creep as does (I think) Down Street!
