History
The station was built by the Midland Railway as simply "Mill Hill" in 1868 on its extension to St. Pancras, being renamed in 1950. Since 1 April 2006 train services have been operated by First Capital Connect. Prior to the major engineering works to create the "Thameslink Box" at St Pancras, Mill Hill Broadway was also served at peak times by Moorgate fast trains. These trains provided a non-stop service to King's Cross Thameslink twice an hour. In 2009, several morning peak southbound fast services (stopping only at West Hampstead) and several evening peak northbound fast services (stopping only at West Hampstead) were reinstated. From March 2009, Southeastern and First Capital Connect began running some peak hour trains from Sevenoaks to Luton , though in the off-peak these services turn back at Kentish Town.

Services
The typical daytime service from the station is four trains per hour southbound to central London, Wimbledon and Sutton; and four trains per hour northbound, of which two terminate at St Albans and two at Luton; and several through the night train services between Bedford and Brighton. After 18:00 the southbound service is only two trains per hour, but the station is served by four trains per hour northbound from St.Pancras and central London until 22:30, when the service becomes two trains per hour. East Midlands Trains InterCity services from Leeds, Sheffield and Leicester run through at high speed and do not stop. Interchange with InterCity services can be made at Luton and St Pancras International.

Transport links
London bus routes 114, 186, 221, 240, 251, 302, 303 and school routes 605, 628, 688 serve the station. Route 113 is about a 6 minute walk away and school route 642 a 4 minute walk away.
