Bayswater tube station

Bayswater tube station

Bayswater tube station is a London Underground station in Travelcard Zone 1 on the Circle and District lines. It is between Notting Hill Gate and Paddington.

Bayswater was opened October 1, 1868, just 5 years after the first stretch of the Metropolitan Railway opened. It was renamed several times: to Bayswater (Queen's Road) & Westbourne Grove in 1923, to Bayswater (Queen's Road) in 1933 and to Bayswater (Queensway) in 1946. The suffix was eventually dropped.

It has a single entrance which opens up to the west side of Queensway (W2) in the City of Westminster. Just a few minutes walk away, at the southern end of Queensway, is a Central line London Underground station, Queensway.
