Craven Passage crosses Craven Street and continues under Charing Cross Station but just before it goes under the station is this Victorian pub - the Ship and Shovell. Its novel feature is that it is in two halves - one each side of Craven Passage. There is, apparently, a cellar which connects the two halves under Craven Passage.

Carry on down the steps to the archway below Charing Cross Station.
