Mornington Crescent

Mornington Crescent was begun in 1821 by Ferdinand, the second Lord Southampton, and is named after a famous con¬nection of the family. For the Lord's sister-in-law was Anne Wellesley, whose maiden name was Mornington, being the daughter of the Earl of Mornington and sister of the Duke of Wellington.

Prior to the station's opening the name of SEYMOUR STREET was proposed, but it was opened as MORNINGTON CRESCENT on 22 June 1907. It was closed - originally intended to be permanently - on 23 October 1992, but re-opened following refurbishment on 27 April 1998.
