Great Portland Street is a London Underground station near Regent's Park. It is between Baker Street and Euston Square on the Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan lines. It is in Travelcard Zone 1.

The station was part of the world's first underground railway, the Metropolitan Railway, which opened between "Bishop's Road" (now Paddington) on the Hammersmith & City Line and "Farringdon Street" (close to the present-day Farringdon station). It was opened on 10 January 1863 as "Portland Road", and was given its present name on 1 March 1917.

Local points of interest include Regent's Park, and the Post Office Tower. The station is very close to Regent's Park station, which is on the Bakerloo Line.

The station is across the street from the main building of International Student House, a student residence and hostel and is also near Harley Street, famous for its doctors and surgeons.

The station is within easy walking distance of Regent's Park and Warren Street tube stations.
