Hampstead tube station is a London Underground station in Hampstead, north London NW3 1QG. The station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Golders Green and Belsize Park stations, and on the boundary between Travelcard Zone 2 and Zone 3. The station was opened on 22 June 1907 by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway.
