Brent Cross tube station is in Golders Green, North West London. It’s in Travelcard Zone 3. It was originally called simply “Brent”, after a nearby river, and opened in 1923. It was designed by the architect Stanley Heaps, who was responsible for many tube stations built in the first half of the 20th century. Its name changed in 1976 to tie in with the opening of a local shopping centre.
