Baker Street tube station is a station on the London Underground at the junction of Baker Street and the Marylebone Road. The station lies in Travelcard Zone 1 and is served by five different lines. It is one of the original stations of the Metropolitan Railway (MR), the world's first underground railway, opened in 1863.

Baker Street station was opened by the MR on 10 January 1863 (these platforms are now served by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines). On 13 April 1868, the MR opened the first section of Metropolitan and St John's Wood Railway as a branch from its existing route. This line, serving the open-air platforms, was steadily extended to Willesden Green and northwards, finally reaching Aylesbury Town and Verney Junction (some 50 miles/80 km from Baker Street) in 1892.

Over the next few decades this section of the station was extensively rebuilt to provide four platforms. The current Metropolitan line layout largely dates from 1925, and the bulk of the surface buildings, designed by architect Charles Clark, also date from this period.

The Baker Street & Waterloo Railway (BS&WR, now the Bakerloo line) opened on 10 March 1906; Baker Street was the temporary northern terminus of the line until it was extended to Marylebone station on 27 March 1907.

The original station building stood on Baker Street and served the tube platforms with lifts, but these were supplemented with escalators in 1914, linking the Metropolitan line and the Bakerloo line platforms by a new concourse excavated under the Metropolitan line.

On 20 November 1939, following the construction of an additional southbound platform and connecting tube tunnels between Baker Street and Finchley Road stations, the Bakerloo line took over the Metropolitan line's stopping services between Finchley Road and Wembley Park and its Stanmore branch. The current Bakerloo ticket hall and escalators to the lower concourse were provided in conjunction with the new service.

The Jubilee line added an extra northbound platform and replaced the Bakerloo line service to Stanmore from its opening on 1 May 1979.

Monday morning update from Camden Council on Chalcots Estate operation
Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council said: “Camden Council would like to thank residents for their patience and co-operation during this period of unprecedented disruption. “We have been working through the night to allocate residents with safe and secure accommodation, and there are now just 14 people staying at Swiss Cottage rest centre. We hope to find a comfortable place for them to stay by the end of the day. “We would also like to thank the residents who moved from their flats on the Chalcots estate last night, helping us to continue with the urgent fire safety works across all four blocks. “As the working week begins we are committed to doing all that we can to support you and your family through the challenges posed by your displacement. “Schools across the borough are aware of the situation and sympathetic to the fact that children may arrive late, without uniform, books or homework. We are looking at options for more play activities and study space out of school hours to support children affected by the evacuation. “If you have been staying with family and friends and are in need of temporary accommodation on a longer term basis, the Swiss Cottage rest centre will be remaining open as an information point. Here, you can register with us, and we will do everything we can to help you move as smooth as possible. “We are also working with SISK to make accommodation available in our brand new Maiden Lane development, if you are staying in a hotel but would prefer to stay at Maiden Lane please register your interest by emailing: chalcotsestate@camden.gov.uk “Our contractors are very busy across the estate, working hard to complete fire safety works as quickly as possible to bring a swift end to the disruption. We have already started works to ensure that residents' doors are self-closing, and today will begin working to correct all of the other issues identified as a risk by the fire service “The urgent works at Blashford* have now been completed and the Fire Services have confirmed that the building is safe. We will now continue with the other works required. “We have undertaken works to ceilings, electric doors and cupboards and I am very pleased with the pace of our dedicated teams. 200 self-closing doors have been delivered and we are ready to start installing them today. “Thank you again for your help in the face of unimaginable disruption. This has been hugely important in helping us get to work, as we step up our game to ensure the safety of you and your neighbours." *Note: residents have not been evacuated from this block (Blashford), as there were key differences from the other four blocks on the Chalcots estate - see earlier press statements on this web page.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

Find the streets of London by clicking STREETS above or explore the maps by clicking MAP.

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
