Baker Street Underground Station
Baker Street Station was opened in 1863. It is the best preserved of the surviving stations on the Metropolitan Railway, the world’s first underground passenger railway. The station was reconstructed on a grand scale in 1911-13 reflecting the aspirations of the Metropolitan Railway to become a mainline railway company. We were appointed by London Underground to prepare a conservation management plan for this grade II* listed station in consultation with the local authority’s conservation officer and English Heritage. In parallel with writing the plan, we also provided advice to the design teams responsible for modernising the station.
