“Screams in the dark”
Bethnal Green station was the site of one of the worst single loss of civilian life during the Second World War. During an air raid, as people rushed to safety beneath ground, the entrance became blocked and 170 people were killed in the resulting crush.
If you’re unlucky enough to find yourself alone in the station, you might hear the screams of those who died along with the sad sound of children sobbing in the dark. The noise rises to a cacophony before disappearing as quickly as it began.
