Tooting Bec tube station is a London Underground station in Tootingmarker, South Londonmarker. The station is on the Northern line, between Balhammarker and Tooting Broadwaymarker stations. It is located on the junction of Trinity Road (heading north-west), Upper Tooting Road (south-west), Balham High Road (north-east), Tooting Bec Road (south-east) and Stapleton Road (also south-east). The station is in Travelcard Zone 3.

History

The station was designed by Charles Holden and opened on 13 September 1926 as part of the Morden extension of the City & South London Railway (now part of the Northern line). It was named Trinity Road when it opened and was given its present name on 1 October 1950.

The narrow satellite building on the east side of the junction provides a pedestrian subway access to the station and is unusual in that it has a large glazed roundel on each of the three panels of its glazed screen, as normally the Morden extension stations have the roundel in just the centre panel. For many years the northern panel of the screen was the sole example on any of the Morden extension stations to retain the 1920s "UNDERGROUND" lettering, the other stations' screens having been replaced with plain glass over the years. All the stations have now had the original motif replaced along with the Flag pole mounted roundels that had been removed in the 1950s.
