I don`t really see this as being possible...certainly not for long periods of time...the water table beneath London has never been very far beneath out feet and pumps are in use virtually the whole time to rid many tunnels etc of this...in recent years the water table has risen too...London`s Underground system is regularly flooded too...but maybe the "subterraneans" have evolved to have gills...who knows,eh ?

Well, no - they slept underground, in the tube stations - different thing to living underground.

Interesting(ish) fact - Jerry Springer was born on the platform of Highgate tube station during the blitz.




No - think they arrived after London had been abandoned by the Romans.




Not in London as there simply isn't the room (unless you go to the Thames-side sewer outlets, but they flood periodically). Its happened in New York tho - check out the documentary Dark Days.
Surely you could go into the tunnels where the tubes run, there's ample room down there between the tracks.
