Clapham Common is one of only two stations with a central platform

Clapham Common is a London Underground station in the London Borough of Lambeth . It is located in the Travelcard tariff zone 2 on the northeast corner of the park of the same name. Trains of the Northern Line stop here . In 2013, 8.94 million passengers used the station.

The station was opened on June 3, 1900 by the City and South London Railway and was then the southern terminus. The extension to Morden was opened on September 13, 1926. In the course of extensive renovation work along the entire line, the station was closed from November 28, 1923 to December 1, 1924.

Besides Clapham North , Clapham Common is the only remaining tube-type station that has a central platform ; a construction method that was still widespread along the Northern Line at the beginning of the 20th century. The glass dome over the entrance is characteristic of the station building ( partly rebuilt in 1923/24 by Charles Holden ). The building has been a listed building ( Grade II ) since 1981 . Clapham Common is one of eight London Underground stations that were converted into an air raid shelter during World War II .
