Tube stations above and below ground

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

Could you please provide a spreadsheet containing a list of all tube stations, outlining which stations are below the ground, and which are outside (i.e. the sky is visible from the platform?)

Thanks very much for your help.

Yours faithfully,
Ryan Spelma

Dear Mr Spelma

 

TfL Ref:          FOI-1480-1112

 

Thank you for your e-mail received by Transport for London (TfL) on 25
January 2012 asking for information about which London Underground station
platforms are below and above ground.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can
confirm TfL does hold the information you require. You asked for:

 

A spreadsheet containing a list of all tube stations, outlining which
stations are below the ground, and which are outside (i.e. the sky is
visible from the platform?)

 

Please find attached a map showing the open air stations on the London
Underground network. This details all stations with platforms above the
ground.

 

I have also attached a standard Tube map so, as you will see, any stations
not included in the open air map can be considered to be under ground.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely

It is a pity that TfL used old Underground Maps, e.g. they show Shoreditch station which is certainly not 'above' ground now, but buried underground for the Overground extension from Dalston southwards!
