Borough tube station is a London Underground station in The Borough area of the London Borough of Southwark. It is on the Bank branch of the Northern Line between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 1.

The station entrance is in Borough High Street (part of the A3), on the corner of Marshalsea Road. The A2 terminates opposite it.

HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 18 December 1890 as part of the first deep-level tube railway, the City and South London Railway (C&SLR), and was rebuilt in the 1920s when the tunnels were enlarged.

Although little of the original station remains, Borough is the most northern of the original C&SLR stations. North of here the railway originally followed a different route from the present one, with the tunnels running to the original terminus at King William Street. This route was abandoned in 1900 when new tunnels on a different alignment to London Bridge and Moorgate were opened.

During the Second World War, parts of the disused tunnels between Borough and the south side of the River Thames were adapted into a large public air raid shelter by Southwark Borough Council. The shelter had six entrances along Borough High Street and opened on 24 June 1940 and closed on 7 May 1945.[4] A plaque at the station records this.

Transports LinksEdit

London Bus routes 21, 35, 40, 133, 343, C10 and Night routes N21 N35, N133 and N343.

FacilityEdit

The station has lifts meaning that it is accessible without stairs to passengers travelling northbound from the station, but there is a short flight of steps from the lower lift lobby down to reach the southbound platform. There is also a spiral stair from ground level to the lower lift lobby.
