History

Seven Sisters was opened by the Great Eastern Railway on 22 July 1872 to serve it’s Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway line. On 1 January 1878, the GER opened a branch line, the Palace Gates Line, from Seven Sisters station to Palace Gates (Wood Green) station.

The Palace Gates Line was closed by British Rail in 1963 and the branch line track and platforms at Seven Sisters were removed.

On 24 July 1967 planning permission was granted to convert the station for London Underground use. The first section of the Victoria line opened on 1 September 1968 serving Seven Sisters, although a shared entrance and interchange facilities with the surface station were not opened until December 1968.

On 31 May 2015 the National Rail station and all services that call there were transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground, although some Greater Anglia services are still scheduled to call at peak times.

In May 2013 it was announced that the station would be on the latest proposed route for Crossrail 2, with a double-ended underground station built linking South Tottenham and Seven Sisters stations.
