Farringdon Street Station was one of the very first London Underground stations. It was the terminus of the Metropolitan Railway, which opened in 1863 and ran initially between Farringdon Street and Paddington.

Now known simply as Farringdon, the station is on the Metropolitan Line, the Hammersmith and City Line, and the Circle Line. It is currently undergoing redevelopment in order to accommodate Thameslink trains.
