Underground Heritage Information
Arnos Grove Station
Listed as a building of national significance
Architect: Charles Holden & Partners. 1932
Built as part of the 1932/33 Piccadilly line extension, this station is internationally recognised as one of the most iconic transport buildings of the 20th century. The emphatic design, that was so novel when built, is of a tall brick drum rising from a low, square structure that include shops and offices. The interior is dominated by the central column and 'passimeter', and shows the careful attention to integrated design that is so notable on this group of stations, linking together the use of materials, such as brick, concrete and bronze work.

Arnos Grove is a London Underground station on the Piccadilly line.
