Goodge Street is a London Underground station located in the Bloomsbury area of the City of Westminster, London, England. It is situated on the Northern line between the Tottenham Court Road and Warren Street stations. The station was first opened on 22 June 1907 as part of the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway, which is now a part of the Northern line.
The station is named after Goodge Street, which runs to the west of the station. The name “Goodge” is a corruption of the name “Gouge,” after the landowners in the area when it was first developed in the 18th century.
The station building has retained much of its original Edwardian architectural style, making it an interesting site for history enthusiasts and visitors alike. As with most London Underground stations, Goodge Street provides access to various nearby attractions, businesses, and residential areas. It serves as a convenient transportation hub for both locals and tourists traveling around the city.
Keep in mind that my knowledge has a cutoff date of September 2021, so there might have been further developments or changes regarding Goodge Street or the London Underground network since then.
