|List of stations|
Originally opened in 1839 by the Newcastle & North Shields Railway as Walker, it was renamed Walker Gate on 1 April 1889. In BR days, the station was sometimes known as Walkergate and sometimes as Walker Gate; the Metro uses the single word form.
The station underwent modernisation work between 23 September 2013 and 16 July 2014 which involved improvements to accessibility (including the installation of a passenger lift), aesthetic changes to the station and the introduction of new smart ticket machines and validators. This was part of the £389m Metro: All Change refurbishment programme.
