Uxbridge tube station
Uxbridge tube station
The station, designed by Charles Holden LinkExternal link with LH Bucknell, opened in late 1938. A tall concrete canopy arches over the tracks with a row of clerestory windows above the platforms LinkExternal link . The canopy is similar to the one at Cockfosters, the terminus at the other end of the Piccadilly line - see TQ2896 : Cockfosters tube station.

As at Cockfosters, the station has three tracks and four platforms (numbered 1 to 4): the centre track is between platforms 2 and 3. This is an example of the so-called "Spanish solution" which helps to speed up boarding and alighting LinkExternal link .

The station is Grade II listed LinkExternal link .
