The station was opened by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway in 1923 on it's Northern extension to Edgware. Hendon Central as the terminus of the extension until the rest of the extension was completed the following year [1][2]. In 1933 the CCEHR railway became part of the London Underground's Northern Line [3].

Hendon Central is an open air station though the Northern Line goes back into tunnel (nowadays known as the Hendon Tunnel) to the North of the station for a short stretch taking the Northern Line under the M1 motorway and Midland Main Line.
