Edgware Road is the name of two tube station either side of Marylebone Road.

Edgware Road (Circle, District and Hammersmith & City lines)[edit]

This station was part of the world's first underground railway when it was opened as part of the Metropolitan Railway between Paddington and Farringdon on 1 October 1863. It was the site of one of the 7 July 2005 London bombings. Mohammad Sidique Khan detonated a bomb at about 8:50am, on board a westbound Circle line train as it was leaving the station, killing six passengers. The station lies in a cutting open to the atmosphere, not in a tunnel.

Edgware Road (Bakerloo line)[edit]

This station was opened on 15 June 1907 by the Baker Street and Waterloo Railway (BS&WR, now the Bakerloo line) when it extended its line from the temporary northern terminus at Marylebone.[1]
