Highgate Underground Station :: Shared Description

Highgate is an Underground station and former railway station in Archway Road, in Haringey, north London. The station takes its name from nearby Highgate Village. It is on the High Barnet branch of the Northern line, between Archway and East Finchley stations and is in Travelcard Zone 3.
The station was originally opened in 1867 as part of the Great Northern Railway's line between Finsbury Park and Edgware stations. The London Underground started serving the station in 1941, using new platforms in tunnels beneath the surface station. The platforms of the surface station remain, but were last used in 1954, and the section of the line through them to Finsbury Park was lifted by 1972. One of the original 1867 station buildings still exists, and is in use as a private house.
