HistoryEdit

The station opened in 1894 as Tooting Junction, replacing an earlier station of the same name which was located a few hundred yards west which had opened in 1868. It was renamed Tooting in 1938, following the closure of the branch line from Tooting to Merton Park to passenger traffic in 1929.
