Map of London Aldwych tube station

Aldwych is a rather odd semi-circular street which, together with the Strand, maroons the home of the BBC World Service on an Island in the middle of busy traffic.

The Strand runs for about a mile from Trafalgar Square to the east end of Aldwych, where the rather beautiful Royal Courts of Justice are situated. Here it changes it's name and becomes Fleet Street.

One of the Kings College campuses is on the south side of the Strand at Aldwych, and their students union bar has one of the best views in London - across and up the Thames to Westminster.
