Angel tube station is a London Underground station in Angel, Islington. It is on the Bank branch of the Northern line, between Old Street and King's Cross St. Pancras stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 1. Located in Islington High Street, the station serves as a portal to several Off West End, or fringe theatre, venues, including Old Red Lion Theatre, The King's Head Theatre and Almeida Theatre. It is also the station for Chapel Market, a London street market, and the antiques market and dealers of Camden Passage. Between Angel and Old Street stations is the disused City Road station.
With a vertical rise of 90 feet (27 m) and a length of 197 feet (60 m), Angel station has the longest escalators on the Underground, and the third-longest set of escalators in Western Europe (after Västra skogen in the Stockholm Metro at 220 feet (67 m) and Kamppi station in the Helsinki Metro at 210 feet (64 m)).
Angel is a proposed station on the Crossrail 2 project. Depending on the route constructed, it would be between King's Cross St Pancras and Dalston Junction or Hackney Central. It was officially safeguarded as part of the route in 2007, although there had been proposals for a route for some time previously and safeguarding had been in place since 1991. This would provide an interchange between a London Underground line and a Crossrail line.
