Strand tube station

There have been two stations on the London Underground network called Strand. The first was on the Piccadilly Line and was renamed Aldwych in 1917 to allow a new station to be built with that name.

This second station was a stop on the Northern Line which merged with Trafalgar Square station on the Bakerloo Line and the new terminus of the Jubilee Line in 1979 to become Charing Cross. The station previously called Charing Cross had previously been renamed Embankment to allow this to happen.

Both sites are located close to the Strand.
