Station building

Platform

Kilburn Park is an underground station on the London Underground in the London Borough of Brent. It is located in Travelcard fare zone 2 on Cambridge Avenue. In 2014, 3.38 million passengers used the station, which is served by the Bakerloo Line.[1]

Made of glazed terracotta bricks and designed by Stanley Heaps, the station building is similar in style to those of Leslie Green, by whom most of the Bakerloo Line stations of the early 20th century were designed. Kilburn Park was among the first London Underground stations to feature escalators rather than lifts from the outset.[2] The station has been a Grade II listed building since 1979.[3]

The station opened on 31 January 1915, and was the north-western terminus of the Bakerloo Line for just under two weeks until it was extended to Queen’s Park on 11 February.[4]
