The tube station where Winston Churchill had his secret command centre is up for sale at a cool £20 million.

Brompton Road tube station, now disused, closed in 1934 and has since been owned by the MInistry of Defence. Now they’re putting it up for sale to the highest bidder.

The property includes a drill hall, a mess and a private network of tunnels.

But new owners won’t be able to hop on the tube using their own private platform: Transport for London owns the platforms and they have been sealed off.
