Mansion House

Mansion House has been the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London since 1753. The house was designed by George Dance and built in 1739-53 on the site of the old Stocks market and St Mary Woolchurch. The building received some damage in the Second World War. The City Police Court is in the same building.

The station was erected on the site of the Church of Holy Trinity the Less and later a Lutheran church.

The station was opened as MANSION HOUSE on 3 July 1871.
