York Road – An Abandoned London Underground Station

York Road

We’ve previously spoken about about Aldwych Underground Station and York Road is another disused station on the Piccadilly line. It opened in 1906 and at the time was part of the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway. It was located near King’s Cross and had its entrance on York Road. The station is still visible both above ground and in the tunnels below.

The station was in one of London’s poorer areas and so saw little use. Sunday services were removed in 1918 and in September 1932, the station was closed. Efforts were made to have the station reopened in 2005 however the plan has yet to come to fruition.
