HistoryEdit

Kilburn Park was opened on 31 January 1915 as the temporary terminus of the Bakerloo line's extension from Paddington station towards Queen's Park.[3] Services were extended to Queen's Park on 11 February 1915.[3] At the extension's opening, Maida Vale station was not complete and the previous station was Warwick Avenue until 6 June 1915.[3] The station building was designed by Stanley Heaps in a modified version of the earlier Leslie Green designed Bakerloo line stations with glazed terra cotta façades but without the large semi-circular windows at first floor level. It was one of the first London Underground stations built specifically to use escalators rather than lifts.[4]
