  • Holyhead

Silverlink run a half hourly service to Watford Junction, which coincides with and runs along the same tracks as the Bakerloo Line between Queen's Park and Harrow And Wealdstone.

Silverlink also run various services to Northampton via Watford Junction, Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes. They used to run slower but cheaper services to Birmingham but don't any more - the cheaper alternative are Chiltern Railways from Marylebone.

Tube lines served

Northern Line (Charing Cross Branch) North <--- Mornington Crescent <--- Euston ---> Warren Street ---> South

The modern building dates from 1968. It is generally agreed to be the worst of the central London terminuses, both ugly and unfriendly to use. See article.


There are cross platform interchanges between the Victoria Line and the Bank branch of the Northern Line


All those that you would expect at a major rail terminus. Note, there are some cash machines hidden in the interchange with the Silverlink platforms.

Food options are mediocre. Apart from Upper Crust, Burger King and their ilk, a Whistlestop shop by the Silverlink platforms is the best bet on the station. If you've got twenty minutes, you could get a takeaway meal from African Kitchen in Drummond St next door.

Public toilets are situated in the northern corner of the station near platform 1 - entry costs 20p
