Former station could be tourist attraction

Posted by Emma Heseltine

A restaurant and a climbing wall could help turn a former tube station into a tourist attraction in its own right.

Brompton Road station in Knightsbridge closed in 1934, but now a former banker, Ajit Chambers, is hoping to lease it, and several other former stations, from the Ministry of Defence.

He is also in talks with Mayor of London Boris Johnson, as Transport for London owns the network, to support his plans.
