One of the things I am very excited for in 2016 is my first visit to the disused tube station at Aldwych. I've talked about this many times in the past on my Subterranean London walk and now on Unexpected London.
I've seen it - many times - on movies where actors take trips on the Underground but now the London Transport Museum is opening the doors for guided tours and I'll be there in February. Check out their website for dates and bookings: www.ltmuseum.co.uk.
If you can't get a place on the tour or don't want to trek underground then Unexpected London - 11am Friday at Temple tube station - is a must. We cover a ridiculously small distance and yet pack it with some of the most hidden spots and beautiful buildings. We also go inside a couple of times so it's a good walk for rainy or cold days.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
