Template:Use dmy dates Template:Use British English Template:Infobox London station Queensbury tube station is a London Underground station in Queensbury, London. It is on the Jubilee line, between Canons Park and Kingsbury, and in Travelcard Zone 4.

History

The station opened on 16 December 1934, two years after the neighbouring stations, as part of the Metropolitan line and with its branch was transferred to the Bakerloo line in 1939, and then the Jubilee line in 1979.

The name Queensbury did not, when it was chosen, refer to any pre-existing area. It was coined by analogy with the adjacent Kingsbury station. Most of the locale now known as Queensbury is actually to the north-west of the tube station, in the London Borough of Harrow, just across the borough border from the tube station, which is in the London Borough of Brent.
