Which Tube Station Do You Share Your Birthday With?
Worst. Photoshop. Ever.

Most people can name a celebrity with whom they share their birthday, but how about a tube station?

There are 272 tube stations. There are 366 possible days on which to have birthdays. Not everyone can have a Tube Birthday, but those who do can now show off to all their friends, using our utterly invaluable guide below.

Dates shown correspond with the day on which the station became an official London Underground stop. In some cases, stations opened at an earlier date, to service other rail services. But they weren't yet tube/underground stops and so were not nearly so interesting.

We've used the modern names below. Quite a few of the stations opened under different names.

Oh, and we've thrown in some corresponding celebrity birthdays, because it seemed like a good idea at the time. If nothing else, this will be useful for pub quiz compilers.

Update: November 2021... now with bonus DLR stops.
