South Acton railway station serves the neighbourhood of Action in West London. It was opened in the late-19th century and quickly became a junction serving both the Hammersmith & Chiswick branch and the North London Line. It was also a stop along the London Underground’s District Line until the late ‘50s. Today, the station lies in Travelcard Zone 3, so most of the almost 800,000 passengers who use the station annually pay using their Oyster cards. Facilities at the station include a ticket office open between Mondays and Fridays, self-service ticket machines, waiting shelters, digital displays and a footbridge connecting the two platforms. There are up to four trains an hour direct to Stratford in 53 minutes and Richmond in 12 minutes.

When you disembark in South Action, you’ll find plenty of things to do and see in the neighbourhood. During the summer months, there are few better places to kick back than South Acton Park and Acton Green Common.
