The station was opened as Finchley Road in 1879 by the Metropolitan Railway, it was renamed Finchley Road (South Hampstead) in 1885 though reverted back to it's original name in 1914 [1] when the station was rebuilt [2]. The station had a freight yard though this closed in 1941 (the sidings remained in place until 1953).

The station was heavily rebuilt again in 1938 [3] as new tunnels and lines as an extension of the Bakerloo Line were built to relieve the pressure on the Metropolitan [4]. The Bakerloo Line served the two central platforms with the Metropolitan the two outer ones [5]. In 1979 this part of the Bakerloo Line became the Jubilee Line [6].
