Down Street: Churchill's Secret Station Experience




For a limited time only, Flemings Mayfair has teamed up with London Transport Museum to offer an exclusive luxury cocktail experience. Guests can enjoy a Hidden London tour to see the tunnels below Down Street station where Churchill took refuge in the Second World War before making their way to the Flemings Hotel to enjoy a luxurious cocktail and smorgasbord in style.
 
Down Street station had a short life as a working station from 1907 to 1932, but later received notoriety as the location where Prime Minister Winston Churchill secretly took refuge at the height of the Blitz. The station was covertly transformed into the Railway Executive Committee’s bomb-proof headquarters where meetings took place to coordinate repairs in order to keep the railway moving to support the war effort. During the tour, guests will be able to experience the warren of narrow tunnels and rooms including the dining room used by the Railway Executive Committee.    
 
After the tour, guests can make the short walk to Manetta’s Bar, hidden away under the bustling streets of London’s most exclusive neighbourhood.

" We loved staying at Flemings during a three day trip to London. Mayfair is very close to posh restaurants, cafes and Hyde Park. Also the Green Park tube is right around the corner and from there you can get to almost anywhere in the city. "
