Stanmore was opened in 1932 by the Metropolitan Railway  and the next year became a branch of the Metropolitan Line of London Underground. The Metropolitan offered commuters a faster route into London than via the earlier Stanmore Village station which was operated by the LMS. Stanmore Village closed in 1952.
There were proposals in the 1930s to extend the line North from Stanmore as far as Elstree or beyond. However these plans were never proceeded with. The Stanmore branch of the Metropolitan Line was transferred to the Bakerloo Line in 1939 and finally became a tube line in it's right, the Jubilee Line, in 1979.
A third platform was added to Stanmore in 2011. The original station building remains and is largely unchanged on the exterior apart from a canopy to shelter bus passengers  though the ticket office has been moved down to platform level. Jubilee Line stock is stored on sidings next to the station, originally this was the site of a small goods yard but this was closed after a couple of years .
