  • The name "Aldwych" comes from the Anglo-Saxon word ealdwic meaning "old settlement". Between the fifth and eighth centuries A.D. Saxon merchants founded a trading post "Lundenwic" outside the Roman city of Londinium on the banks of the Thames[1], possibly to avoid the Roman equivalent of the congestion charge. Eventually, as the focus of the city was moved back to within the old Roman walls, Aldwych gained its new name.
  • During World War 2 in 1940, the operational platform at Aldwych station used as a public air-raid shelter. A second, already disused platform and running tunnel were used to store the Elgin Marbles and other artefacts from the British Museum and other institutions[2].
