Tower of London tube station was a station in London situated where Tower Hill station is located today.

It was opened in 1882 during the construction of the Metropolitan Railway (MR, now the Metropolitan Line) to the north. Only two years later, the MR and Metropolitan District Railway (MDR, now the District Line) were connected to form the Inner Circle (now the Circle Line) and a new station was built. This new station was opened in 1884 as Mark Lane (later renamed "Tower Hill"), just to the west of Tower of London station, which closed the same day.

When the original Tower Hill station was itself closed in 1967, the current Tower Hill station was opened on the site of Tower of London station. The remains of the old station were demolished by the construction of the new station.
