Gants Hill tube station is a London Underground station in Gants Hill, in the London Borough of Redbridge. It is served by the Central Line and is in Zone 4. It is the easternmost station to be entirely below ground on the London Underground network.

Construction originally began in the 1930s but was suspended during the Second World War. During the war, the station was used as an air raid shelter and the tunnels as a munitions factory for Plessey electronics. The station was finally completed and opened on 14 December 1947. Originally, it was to have been named "North Ilford".

The station, like many others on the same branch, was designed by notable Tube architect Charles Holden; during the planning period London Underground advised on the construction of the new Moscow Metro, which is why the barrel-vaulted halls of Gants Hill echo many stations on the Russian capital's system.[4][5]

The station is located beneath Gants Hill roundabout, and accessed via the pedestrian subway under the roundabout. It is thus almost invisible from ground level; the only visible traces are the London Transport signs at some of the entrances to the subway and (for the sharp-eyed) the ticket office windows on the roundabout.

There are three escalators from the ticket office to the platforms.

Transport connectionsEdit

The station is served by several 'feeder' bus routes to the station: routes 66, 123, 128, 150, 167, 179, 296, 396 and 462.
