Lothbury was an authorised underground railway station planned by the Great Northern & City Railway (GN&CR) but never built. It was to be located in Lothbury, in the City of London, the historic nucleus and financial centre of London.

In November 1901, the GN&CR published a notice of its intention to present a Royal Assent on 8 August 1902 as the Great Northern and City Railway Act of 1902.[2]

The station was to have been built entirely below ground, with access to the street by [3]

The Great Northern and City Railway Act of 1907, which received Assent on 26 July 1907,[4] granted additional time for the construction of the Lothbury extension but the money could not be raised and no further work was done.[5]

In 1913, the Metropolitan Railway (MR) purchased the GN&CR and revived the Lothbury proposal in a modified form as part of a number of plans to connect the GN&CR to the Waterloo & City Railway (W&CR) and the MR itself.[6] When the Metropolitan Railway Act of 1913 was passed on 15 August 1913,[7] neither of the proposals for connections were permitted, but Lothbury station was approved, again as the terminus station.[8] In 1914, the MR introduced revised proposals for its connections between the GN&CR and the MR and W&CR, which removed the need for the station at Lothbury. Although these connections were never realised, the concept of a Lothbury station was never revived again.[9]
