Caledonian Road tube station


Caledonian Road tube station

Caledonian Road is a station on the Piccadilly Line of the London Underground, between King's Cross St. Pancras and Holloway Road, and in Travelcard Zone 2. It was opened on 15 December 1906.

Caledonian Road station is located on the north end of Caledonian Road in Holloway, north London. The station continues to use lifts, never having been upgraded to escalators. Unusually for stations of its era, the elevators descend directly to platform level with no secondary staircases. In recent times this has meant that the station is now advertised as "Step Free" on line maps without rebuilding work taking place.

The next southbound station from Caledonian Road was originally York Road. This station closed in 1932, but can still be seen from trains.
