Interior of the station

Cockfosters is an above-ground station of the London Underground in the London Borough of Enfield , a few meters from the border with the London Borough of Barnet . It is in the Travelcard tariff zone 5 on Cockfosters Road and is the north-eastern terminus of the Piccadilly Line . In 2013, 1.97 million passengers used the station.

Architecture and history

The station opened on July 31, 1933. Like the other stations in the northern part of the Piccadilly Line, this one was designed by Charles Holden in a modernist style. Predominant building materials are brick, reinforced concrete, and glass. Holden originally planned to build two additional towers, but eventually decided not to, so that Cockfosters is much simpler than Oakwood, for example . The building has been a listed building ( Grade II ) since 1987 .

The station has three covered tracks, the middle one being accessible from two sides ( Spanish solution ). While Cockfosters is the terminus for most trains on the Piccadilly Line, some already turn at Arnos Grove , especially during rush hour and in the evening. East of the station is one of the two main workshops of the Piccadilly Line with a parking facility. The London Outer Orbital Path , a 240-kilometer hiking trail around Greater London , runs through the station's pedestrian tunnel .
