History[change | change source]

Bond Street Station first opened on 24th September 1990 by the Central London Railway, three months after the first stations opened on the Central Line. The station had several major reconstructions, the first of which replaced the original lifts with escalators along with the addition of a new sub-surface ticket hall, designed by architect Charles Holden, and came into uses on 8th June 1926.

Jubilee Line Era[change | change source]

The Charles Holden facade was later demolished, and was replaced by the "West One" Shopping arcade as part of the Jubilee Line opening on the 1st May 1979.

21st Century[change | change source]

The most recent expansion was completed in November 1917, in preparation for the arrival of the Elizabeth Line, brining Bond Street onto a Network Rail Line.
