</table> Lancaster Gate is a London Underground station located near Lancaster Gate on Bayswater Road in Bayswater (City of Westminster), to the north of Kensington Gardens. It is between Queensway and Marble Arch on the Central line and is in Travelcard Zone 1.

HistoryEdit

Lancaster Gate station was opened on 30 July 1900 by the Central London Railway (now the Central line). The original station building was typical of the work of the line's original architect Harry Bell Measures. It was demolished and a new surface building constructed as part of the development above in 1968. The development was designed by T P Bennett & Son as an office block but converted soon after into a hotel. In 2004-05 the lower floors of the hotel were re-clad in white stone to a design by Eric Parry Architects.[6] The hotel received planning permission for the re-cladding to include the station façade[7], but this did not proceed.

RenovationEdit

The station was closed from 3 July 2006 until 13 November 2006, so that the lifts and station could be refurbished.[8] Despite the station's low patronage, its chronic lift failures were considered by Transport for London to be a safety hazard and an inconvenience to passengers.[9]

LocationEdit

The station is located within walking distance from Paddington station, providing a convenient interchange between the Central line and the mainline station, although this is not highlighted on the Underground map.

Transport LinkEdit

London Bus routes 46, 94, 274, 148 and 390.
