Piccadilly Circus tube station
Piccadilly Circus tube station is the London Underground station located directly beneath Piccadilly Circus itself, with entrances at every corner. It is in Travelcard Zone 1. It is on the Piccadilly Line between Green Park and Leicester Square, (where the tubes are 102ft below the surface); and the Bakerloo Line between Charing Cross and Oxford Circus (86ft below).
Piccadilly Circus was opened 10 March 1906 on the Bakerloo Line; the Piccadilly Line platforms were opened on 15 December 1906. As originally built it had, like other stations, a surface booking hall. The development of traffic before and after WWI meant that the need for improved station facilities was acute. It was decided to construct a sub-surface booking hall and circulating area, which would also provide public pedestrian subways, and work was begun to February 1925: the whole complex cost more than half-a-million pounds. Eleven escalators were provided in two flights, leading to the two Lines served by the station. It is one of the few stations which have no associated buildings above ground, the station being fully underground, although some have the booking hall there (Leicester Square and Holborn being two examples). The old station building finally closed for traffic on 21 July 1929.
