3. NECROPOLIS, WATERLOO VAULTS
If you're a bit braver you can always really go for it and visit Necropolis, situated deep beneath Waterloo Station. This is not for the faint of heart as you can expect spooky tales, ghosts, gore and gruesome facts!
Necropolis was rumoured to be the remains of the notorious Necropolis Railway Station, London's biggest underground morgue, which closed in 1941. This was where, as story has it, Londoners were forced to take their dead back in a time when the city was overfilled with corpses...
NECROPOLIS WAS, SO THEY SAY, AN OLD RAILWAY STATION AND MORGUE
Perhaps only take a date you know rather well to this one.
