Kingsbury tube station is a London Underground station in northwest London, England. Although now only served by deep-level tube trains, the section of line serving the station is built to surface gauge and trains to that larger LU loading gauge occasionally pass through.
It was opened on December 10, 1932 as part of the Stanmore branch of the Metropolitan Railway and served by that company's electric trains. After the formation of London Transport in 1933 this branch became part of the LU Metropolitan Line and was later transferred to the Bakerloo Line in 1939 then to the Jubilee Line in 1979. The design style is similar to that of other Metropolitan Railway buildings of the same period rather than to the concrete and glass style used at the same time by the LER group. In common with other nearby Metropolitan Railway stations (e.g. Harrow-on-the-Hill, Neasden, Queensbury) there is an element of fiction in the station name; the area is properly within the eastern extent of Kenton (Kingsbury Road at this point was originally part of the eastern end of Kenton Lane) and Kingsbury proper is actually closer to Neasden LU station.
The station is on the south side of the A4006 Kingsbury Road, opposite Berkeley Road. It is in a parade of shops; to the left of its entrance (facing the station) is an off-licence, a jeweller and an estate agent. To the right of the entrance is a newsagent, then the entrance to a dentist's above the newsagent, then a photography centre/portrait studio, then a Subway then an over 21 club called Tonky Gorilla.
London Buses routes 204, 183, 324 and Night Bus route N98 serve the site of the station. Other London Buses routes close to the station include the 79, and the 305. The station is situated on the Kingsbury Road, part of the A4006 which leads west to Kenton and Harrow and east to the The Hyde on the Edgware Road.
