The station opened on September 13, 1926 as part of the extension from Clapham Common to Morden . Designed by Charles Holden , the station is a modernist style building made of Portland stone . The main facade is rounded, the tiles on the platforms and in the access routes have been preserved in their original state. The building has been a listed building ( Grade II ) since 1987 . In front of the entrance is a statue created in 1911 by the artist Louis Frederick Roslyn , which depicts King Edward VII and is also a listed building.
A special feature is that trains traveling south in Tooting Broadway can turn around if necessary, instead of continuing to the terminus Morden. For this purpose, the trains use a stump track between the two separate tunnels.
