Bond Street tube station is a London Underground station on Oxford Street, near the junction with New Bond Street. Note that the street-level entrances are several metres west of New Bond Street itself. The actual entrance to the station is inside the West One shopping arcade on the corner of Oxford Street and Davies Street.

The station is on the Central Line between Marble Arch and Oxford Circus and on the Jubilee Line, between Baker Street and Green Park. It is in Travelcard Zone 1.

History

The station was first opened on 24 September 1900 by the Central London Railway, three months after the first stations on the Central Line opened. The surface building was designed, in common with all original CLR stations, by the architect Harry Bell Measures.

In 1909, Harry Selfridge proposed a subway link to his new Selfridges store to the west. Contemporary opposition quashed the idea.

The station has seen several major reconstructions. The first, which saw the original lifts replaced by escalators, a new sub-surface ticket hall and a new façade to the station, designed by the architect Charles Holden, came into use on 8 June 1926. This was demolished with the construction of the "West One" shopping arcade in the 1980s, a period that had also seen the Jubilee Line services to this station commence on 1 May 1979. Some slight elements of the original facade do survive above the eastern entrance to the station.
