Disused stations from the London Underground transit system could be transformed into new tourist attractions if proposals are given the go-ahead.

Former banker Ajit Chambers has announced intentions to give the old sights a makeover as part of a newly introduced leasing deal to create bars and restaurants.

As part of a joint venture with the Ministry of Defence (MoD), Mr Chambers is currently in talks with Mayor Boris Johnson to support the plans across the transit network.

The transformations would see Brompton Road station, which is owned by the MoD, rejuvenated with a rooftop restaurant and climbing wall.

Mr Chambers said: “We would like to have a rooftop restaurant, have a tourist attraction and the deep drop shafts for climbing walls.

“Imagine the history and the historic meetings that went on here.”
