Baker Street tube station

Category: Tube stations

Baker Street tube station is a station on the London Underground located on Baker Street.

The station lies in Travelcard Zone 1 and is on five different lines.

On the Circle Line and Hammersmith & City Line it is between Great Portland Street and Edgware Road. On the Metropolitan Line it is between Great Portland Street and Finchley Road.

On the Bakerloo Line it is between Regent’s Park and Marylebone, and on the Jubilee Line it is between Bond Street and St. John’s Wood.

The sub-surface Circle Line platforms are part of the very oldest Underground line. Of the stations on this section of line they are perhaps the best-preserved. Plaques along the platform show old plans and photographs of the station.

The station layout is rather complex. The sub-surface station is connected to the open-air Metropolitan Line station. This is a terminus for most trains, but there is also a connecting curve that joins to the Circle Line just beyond the platforms that allows Metropolitan line trains to run to Aldgate in the City.

Below this is a deep-level tube station for the Bakerloo and Jubilee Lines. These are arranged in a cross-platform interchange. With ten platforms overall, Baker Street has the most platforms of any Underground station on the network.
