Closed tube stations

These stations of the London Underground and its predecessor companies (such as the Metropolitan Railway, the City and South London Railway and Underground Electric Railways of London) are now closed and, for the most part, abandoned.

Closed non-tube stations

As are these stations, all of which were at the far end of the
Metropolitan Line:

Open stations but with closed sections

These deep-level stations have closed platforms:

Stations transfered to mainline railways

These stations once served by the Metropolitan Line beyond Amersham station remain open as mainline stations:

As do these on the former District Line beyond Ealing Broadway station: And also some stations beyond Upminster station when the District Line had a through service to Southend.

And these on the Northern City Line (Great Northern & City Railway;), which now is completely absorbed into the mainline railway system:

And finally these stations once served by the Bakerloo Line beyond Harrow & Wealdstone; remain open as mainline stations, served by Silverlink services:

Some tube stations were only partially constructed, and never opened:

Fictitious closed stations

The
James Bond movie Die Another Day features a disused tube station called Vauxhall Cross; however, this is a fictitious station. The station is supposed to be on a disused branch of the Piccadilly Line (similar to Aldwych) that runs south of the river to Vauxhall Cross, in the vicinity of the MI6 building. In fact, the Piccadilly Line does not cross the river at all.

The film Quatermass and the Pit features a fictitious tube station called Hobbs End. The station is located at the end of the fictional Hobbs Lane. Hobb or Hob is an old name for the Devil.

Other underground stations

Not part of the tube network but still stations which were underground were
