East Finchley tube station

East Finchley is a London Underground station in East Finchley.

It is in zone 3, and is on the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line between Highgate and Finchley Central. The station is above ground.

The station was opened in 1945, two months before the outbreak of World War 2, and at the time was considered an extremely modern piece of architecture. It was designed in an art nouveau style, the glass frontage resembling the bows of a ship, by Charles Holden. Standing over the station, looking south towards central London, is a ten foot statue of an archer. The Archer, a local independent newspaper, is named after this landmark.
