Upton Park station is a London Underground station on the District and Hammersmith and City lines, on Green Street in the Upton Park area of the London Borough of Newham, east London. It is in Zone 3.

The station was opened by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway (LTSR) in 1877. District Line service began in 1902, and the Hammersmith & City (at that time the Metropolitan Line) followed in 1936. LTSR services were withdrawn in 1962.

The station has two working platforms, one for each direction. Two other platforms used to serve the LTSR but are now disused.

Upton Park serves as the local tube station for the Boleyn Ground, the home ground of West Ham United football club. It is also adjacent to Queens Road Market, one of London's most ethnically diverse markets.

HistoryEdit

Upton Park was the first station on the LT&SR to be built by a property developer[3]. Read was a developer who proposed the station and given approval designed and built a two platform station between the houses of Queen's Road and Harold Road. The station fronted Queen's Square on the corner of Green Street and Queen's Road opened in September 1877. The building was demolished in 1903/04 when the line was quadrupled and the present station constructed.

Transport connectionsEdit

London Buses routes 58, 104, 238, 330 and 376 serve the site of the station.

FacilitiesEdit

There are two ticket offices, two touch screen ticket machines, and three of the more traditional coin-only button machines.

At present there are no lifts at the station for disabled access, nor are there plans to install any in the near or distant future.
