This book tells the story of the Hampstead Tube from its inception in the 1890s, through to the present day. Originally connecting Charing Cross to Golders Green and Highgate, the story of how it was gradually extended further into the countryside and helped the spread of London's suburbs ever northwards is told. Its connections with the City & South London Railway at Camden Town and Kennington in the 1920s are described, as well as the further extensions over main line tracks to High Barnet and Mill Hill in the late 1930s. The history is brought up to date through the trials of the Second World War, the financial constraints of the post-war period, and into the new regime imposed by the Public Private Partnership.

Lavishly illustrated with many contemporary photographs, maps, and posters - many of which have not been published previously - this book tells the tale of the last of London's Edwardian tube railways.
