Lancaster Gate

Lancaster Gate is one of the gates into Hyde Park and could have received its name in honour of Queen Victoria, in her capacity as Duchess of Lancaster. A street of the same name, roughly opposite the gate, was built in 1863-66.

Prior to the station's opening the name of WESTBOURNE was proposed, but it opened as LANCASTER GATE on 30 July 1900.
