A London subway station used as a shelter during the Nazi bombing has been recreated to look as it would have done during the 1940s. The station was opened to the public.

Visitors get to tour the station, that used as an air raid shelter during the Nazi campaign, as part of events to commemorate the bombing of Britain during 1940—1941. Actors will illustrate the atmosphere in the underground stations where thousands of Britons were forced to hide as bombs rained down on the capital.
