Tooting Broadway tube station is a London Underground station in Tooting, South London. The station is on the Northern Line, between Tooting Bec and Colliers Wood stations. It is located on the corner of Tooting High Street (A24) and Mitcham Road (A217). The station is in Travelcard Zone 3.

History

The station was designed by Charles Holden and was opened on 13 September 1926 as part of the Morden extension of the City & South London Railway (now part of the Northern Line).

Southbound trains can terminate at Tooting Broadway on occasion rather than continue on to end of the line at Morden three stations to the south. To return north, out of service trains run south from the southbound platform into a reversing siding between the two running tunnels before reversing and running north through points on to the northbound platform where they return into service.
