Geography and history

The area around Queensbury Circle/Honeypot Lane is in the HA postcode area and the area south east of Queensbury tube station is in the NW postcode area. Queensbury tube station is on the Jubilee Line. Queensbury neighbours the district of Kingsbury in the London Borough of Brent.

Queensbury tube station

The main focus of Queensbury is the area where the tube station is located. Queensbury did not exist as an area before the arrival of the Metropolitan Line in the 1930s (this part of the line was renamed the Jubilee Line in 1978). Queensbury tube station opened on the 16th December 1934. The name Queensbury was adopted for the tube station to match neighbouring Kingsbury and has no historical basis ["Whats in a Name?" Cyril M. Harris ISBN 1-85414-241-0] . The next stop southbound from Queensbury on the Jubilee Line is Kingsbury and Canons Park is the first station in the northbound direction.

The parade of shops and houses built along with the station form a large crescent with a public green space in the centre. The area was developed in the 1930s and the architecture reflects this. Until May 2008 a roundabout in front of the station featured a prominent 1930's style mast bearing the London Underground emblem. The pavements and public space were redeveloped at that time losing some of the 1930s character.
