Edgware Road tube station is a name shared by two separate stations on the London Underground, in Travelcard Zone 1. This article is about the station serving the Circle Line, District Line and Hammersmith and City Line. See Edgware Road Station (Bakerloo Line) for the station on that line.

Both stations have entrances on Edgware Road, approximately 150 metres apart and on opposite sides of the Marylebone Road flyover and dual carriageway. There have been proposals to rename one of the stations, though as of September 2007 there are no official plans to do so. Neither of the Edgware Road stations should be confused with Edgware tube station, at one of the northern ends of the Northern Line.

HistoryEdit

This station was part of the world's first underground railway when it was opened as part of the Metropolitan Railway between Paddington and Farringdon on 1 October 1863.

It was one of the sites for the July 7th bombings. 6 People died when Mohammad Sidique Khan detonated a bomb as the train was leaving the station

The station todayEdit

The station is located in a cutting, but is not in a tunnel. It serves the cut and cover routes of the Hammersmith & City, Circle and District Lines, forming the northern terminus for the latter's service to Wimbledon Station.

To the east of the station the Circle and Hammersmith and City Lines share the same tracks to Baker Street. To the west all three lines run to Paddington station, but the Hammersmith and City Line diverges from the Circle and District lines to call at a separate station at the far end of Paddington mainline station. Edgware Road station is therefore the recommended interchange for westbound travellers.

It is located on the corner of Chapel Street and Cabbell Street.
