LIVERPOOL STREET UNDERGROUND STATION

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  BISHOPSGATE STATION
DESCRIPTION + /

Liverpool Street underground station opened as Bishopsgate on 12 July 1875, but Metropolitan Railway services had been running into platforms 1and 2 of the GER's Liverpool Street main line station since 1st February, prior to completion of the Metropolitan Railways own station. In November 1909 the Metropolitan Railways station was renamed Liverpool Street and in July 1912 a new terminus was provided for the Central London Railway following its extension from Bank. Work started before World War II to reconstruct the stations for improved interchange prior to the extension of the Central Line eastwards, which opened on 4th December 1946. In early 1951 a new sub-surface ticket hall was added below part of the main line station.
