West Hampstead is a London Underground Jubilee line station in West Hampstead. It is on West End Lane between Broadhurst Gardens and Blackburn Road and is in Travelcard Zone 2. It lies between Kilburn and Finchley Road tube stations. It is 100m from West Hampstead station on the London Overground North London Line and 200m from West Hampstead Thameslink station.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 30 June 1879 by the Metropolitan Railway (now the Metropolitan line) when it extended its tracks from Swiss Cottage. The station acted as the temporary terminus of the branch until it was further extended to Willesden Green on 24 November 1879. On 20 November 1939 stopping services were transferred to the Bakerloo line when it took over operations on the Stanmore branch; at this time the platform was rebuilt in the Underground's standard style, but the station building was retained. Stopping services were transferred to the Jubilee line on 1 May 1979.[3] Metropolitan line services run through the station without stopping.

Access and interchanges[edit]

The station is not accessible by wheelchair. Facilities include an automatic ticket machine, two quick ticket machines, a ticket booth, countdown timers, a waiting room and both male and female toilets.

Most maps show the three stations as connections. Through ticketing is allowed.

Development[edit]

There are proposals for a new West Hampstead interchange linking all three stations in the area, and additionally serving two further lines that currently pass through the site. In 2008 it was proposed that the North and West London Light Railway could serve the station.[4]
