A Green Tube Network Trivia Quiz


The London Underground (or "Tube") has one green line on its map (the District Line) but lots of "green" stations. You need to match them to a line you can take to get there - some are on more than one line, but there is only one unique solution.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Green Park

Answer: Victoria line

Green Park tube station is named after Green Park, one of the city's Royal Parks and a large open area that provides green space for residents, workers and tourists alike. The station is located on the north side of the park and is also a handy stop for visitors heading for Buckingham Palace, the shops of Bond Street (one of the green properties on the standard UK Monopoly board) or the Ritz Hotel.

When the station was originally built in 1906 it was only served by what is now the Piccadilly line. However, it was expanded with the construction of the Victoria line in the 1960s and the Jubilee line in the 1970s and is now a busy interchange between the three lines.
2. Willesden Green

Answer: Jubilee line

Willesden is a popular and largely residential area of north-west London. Willesden Green station is located towards the western end of the Jubilee line. Although part of the "tube" network, it is on a surface-level section of the line and has normal open-air platforms. It was first opened in 1879 as part of the Metropolitan line, was transferred to the Bakerloo line in 1939 and then on to the new Jubilee line in 1979.

Although the Jubilee line continues northbound as far as Stanmore, many services terminate at Willesden Green - so the name of the station is a common sight on the front of trains passing through the busy areas of Central London.
3. Bethnal Green

Answer: Central line

Bethnal Green in London's East End is served by a tube station of the same name on the Central line, between Liverpool Street to the west and Mile End to the east.

Construction of the station began in the 1930s, as part of a planned eastern extension of the Central line, but was stalled by the outbreak of the Second World War. Instead its underground facilities were put to use as an air raid shelter. In March 1943 it was the scene of one of the largest single war-time losses of civilian life when 173 people were killed following a panicked crush in its stairwell during an air raid - a fact that was kept secret until the war was over.
4. Bounds Green

Answer: Piccadilly line

Bounds Green tube station in north London is (when travelling northbound) the last actual underground station before the Piccadilly line emerges from its tunnels and runs at surface level to its terminus at Cockfosters. It is one of a pair of "green stations" on this section of the Piccadilly line as the next station to the south is called Wood Green.

During the Second World War, part of one of the station's tunnels was damaged by a bomb dropped on nearby houses. The station was being used as an air raid shelter at the time and a number of people, including Belgian refugees, were killed.
5. Golders Green

Answer: Northern line

Golders Green is located to the north-west of Hampstead Heath in north London. Its eponymous tube station is on the Northern line - the one depicted by a black line on the famous tube map and noted for having two separate routes through Central London which rejoin briefly at Camden Town before splitting again to head off in two separate northerly directions.

The station opened in 1907. At that time, it was a terminus and the only station on its branch to be on the surface. Following the opening of an extension to Edgware in the 1920s it is now a through-station on the Edgware branch of the line.
6. Kensal Green

Answer: Bakerloo line

Kensal Green station is on both London's Underground and Overground train network and opened in 1916. The Underground station (which is not actually underground but located in an open-air cutting) is a stop on the Bakerloo line, while its Overground platforms serve a suburban line out of London Euston.

Kensal Green is in north-west London and straddles the boundary between the London Boroughs of Brent and Kensington & Chelsea.
7. Greenford

Answer: Central line

While Greenford is definitely a tube station on the Central line, it is far from being an "underground" station as passengers actually have to go up to the platforms which are raised above ground level. In fact, it was the first station on the tube network to have escalators taking people up to the platforms rather than down. Greenford station also has platforms on a branch line of the Overground network.

Greenford is located towards the western end of the Central line's route, just four stops before its terminus at West Ruislip.
8. Stepney Green

Answer: Hammersmith & City line

All tube stations on the Hammersmith & City line are also on at least one other London Underground line as the route only became recognised as an independent line (and coloured pink on the Tube map) in 1990.

Stepney Green serves the Stepney area of East London and is on the section of the Hammersmith & City line that is shared with the District line. Although the station is underground, it is classed as a sub-surface station and is accessed by only a short flight of steps rather than the escalators required to reach the deep platforms of other lines such as the Piccadilly.
9. Parsons Green

Answer: District line

Parsons Green is an above ground tube station located between Fulham Broadway and Putney Bridge on the section of the District line that runs down to Wimbledon in South London. Parsons Green is a largely residential location that forms part of Fulham.

The station came to prominence when a bomb planted on a busy District line train exploded there in 2017. Fortunately, the somewhat crude homemade bomb only partially exploded, and while dozens of people were injured - some of whom suffered burns - there were no fatalities. The teenage bomber was later caught while trying to flee the country.
10. North Greenwich

Answer: Jubilee line

North Greenwich station opened in 1999 and is located one stop east of Canary Wharf on the Jubilee line. It serves as both a transport hub for the workers and residents of London's Docklands area as well as for visitors to the O2 entertainment venue (a building formerly known as the Millennium Dome).

It is one of a number of stations on the 1990s extension to the Jubilee line (which was first opened in 1979 and named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee two years earlier). These more modern stations are noted for their concrete architecture and glass safety barriers along their platform edges.
