Station for the Museum of Childhood
Jun 2020
Bethnal Green tube station is not connected the Bethnal Green station on the Overground. This is about a 15 minute walk away. The station is on the Central Line which runs from East to West London right through the middle of Central London. There are trains from Stratford, Liverpool Street, Oxford Street and Shepherds Bush to this station and generally run every few minutes. There is no step free access for this station but can be accessed by escalators from platform to the ticket office and then steps to the street level. Nearby is the Museum of Childhood which is a free museum and there are shops and a park nearby as well. There are plenty of bus links from this tube station as well.

Easy access to the station. Good directions to the Tube and places in London easy to travel to.

I am always happy to travel to Central London and other places via Bethnal Green Station. Feels safe and not usually too crowded.

Bleak and windswept!

This underground station must be one of the coldest in London. It's drafty even in summer. However, the staff cannot be held responsible for their surroundings. Recently I observed one employee go beyond the call of duty to help passenger after passenger understand where to go. He was so patient and good-humoured.

I lived around Bethnal Green for a few months and used to use this station to get into work. That's all I ever used the station for and I've no idea why this is listed as an attraction. There's nothing noteworthy about this station at all. There's facilities for topping up an Oyster card and that's about it. Immediately outside of the station is a few parks and lots of eateries and many pubs within walking distance.

No better or worse than most other London Underground stations on the Central Line. Relatively deep station, so it’s always better when the escalators are working. Generally a bit shabby looking, often lots of litter. Staff have improved over the years, to be more friendly and helpful.

Great location and very good quick access to the city of course. Busy inside the station and bustling out Bethnal Green station. Regular Central Line method of transport to the city.

An ordinary station but with some great nearby attractions

Bethnal Green station is pretty much like any other tube station with its WW2 interest however it is the gateway to The Museum of Childhood just a couple of minutes walk away and also Victoria Park and the Regents Canal which are 15 minutes or so on foot. There was an excellent coffee cart at the V&A exit today.

This is a London underground station in Bethnal Green served by the Central Line. This was an air-raid shelter in WWII and 173 people were killed in a crush while attempting to enter the shelter on 3rd March 1943. A commemorative plaque can be found at the station's southeast entrance at the corner of Cambridge Heath Road and Roman Road above the step where the first woman fell.

Underground Station

During World War II, Bethnal Green Tube station was one of the few stations that were used for shelter when air raids were being carried out. The station saved many lives during the war but it also became the site of one of the worst civilian disasters of the war. The tube station got few exits what I like. You can choose your exits and decide to towards Liverpool street, Whitechapel, Mile end or Hackney. There is a Bethnal green overground station what is 10 minutes by walking from the tube station.
