Westbourne Park tube station


Westbourne Park tube station

Westbourne Park is a London Underground station on the Hammersmith and City Line, between Ladbroke Grove and Royal Oak stations, and in Travelcard Zone 2. Although the Metropolitan Railway had been extended to Notting Hill and Hammersmith on 1 June 1864 the first station by this name did not open until February 1, 1866. This closed on 31 October 1871 to be replaced the following day by a new station constructed to the east of the original. In February 1913 a bomb - possibly planted by the Suffragettes - was discovered at Westbourne Park station.

Adjoining the station is the First Centerwest bus garage.

Westbourne Park railway station

There were once British Rail platforms on the Great Western Main Line, but these closed in the early 1990s. Another station on the Hammersmith and City Line, Royal Oak, also had a GWR station, but this shut with the arrival of the underground in 1871. Today the first stop out of Paddington is at Acton Main Line.
