<p><b>Lancaster Gate</b> is a <a href="/pages/w/112364552109230">London Underground</a> station located on the <a href="/pages/w/108188595875611">Central line</a> near <a href="/pages/w/132410343464164">Lancaster Gate</a> on <a href="/pages/w/137766396245090">Bayswater Road</a> in <a href="/pages/w/103101993063016">Bayswater</a> (<a href="/pages/w/112387548778728">City of Westminster</a>), to the north of <a href="/pages/w/112125192138363">Kensington Gardens</a>. It is between <a href="/pages/w/124348454276191">Queensway</a> and <a href="/pages/w/132610440113210">Marble Arch</a> on the <a href="/pages/w/108188595875611">Central line</a> and is in <a href="/pages/w/123262534385033">Travelcard Zone 1</a>.</p><h2>History</h2><p>Lancaster Gate station was opened on 30 July 1900 by the <a href="/pages/w/139830519368009">Central London Railway</a> (now the Central line). The original station building was typical of the work of the line's original architect <a href="/pages/w/135778866452742">Harry Bell Measures</a>. It was demolished and a new surface building constructed as part of the development above in 1968. The development was designed by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tp_bennett%23Tp_bennett" class="wikipedia">T P Bennett & Son</a> as an office block but converted soon after into a hotel. In 2004-05 the lower floors of the hotel were re-clad in white stone to a design by Eric Parry Architects. The hotel received planning permission for the re-cladding to include the station façade, but this did not proceed.</p><h3>Renovation</h3><p>The station was closed from 3 July 2006 until 13 November 2006, so that the lifts and station could be refurbished. The station's chronic lift failures were considered by <a href="/pages/w/108290305862664">Transport for London</a> to be a safety hazard and an inconvenience to passengers. Passenger numbers have increased over the years and as a result the station's small ticket hall area is often severely congested, especially at the weekends due to the numerous hotels in the area.</p>
