Burnt Oak tube station is a London Underground station in Burnt Oak, north London, on Watling Avenue, off the A5 (the Edgware Road, originally a Roman Road known as Watling Street). The station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern line, between Edgware and Colindale stations, and in Travelcard Zone 4.

History[edit]

The station was designed by architect Stanley Heaps and opened as Burnt Oak (Watling) on 27 October 1924, two months after the extension of the Hampstead & Highgate Line from Hendon Central to Edgware had opened. The station was originally provided with a temporary structure before the final ticket office building was constructed in 1925. The suffix was dropped from the name about 1950.

Connections[edit]

London Buses routes 114; 204; 251; 302; 305 and night route N5 serve the station.
