Located in Travelcard Zone 4 on the outskirts of west London, Southall station provides regular passenger services into central London and Heathrow Airport, and out towards the commuter towns of Reading, Newbury and Oxford. As the station is located at the heart of a large Punjabi community, many of its signs and notices are bilingual – the main station sign bears both the name Southall and its translation in Gurmukhi script. Southall has been home to regular services to and from London Paddington since it first opened its doors in 1839, and continues to provide easy access to the city to this day. Southall bus station sits a few minutes from the railway station and provides direct links across the country to areas such as Leicester and Birmingham. Southall’s main street, The Broadway is home to one of the largest South Asian communities in the UK and was featured in the Hollywood film Bend It Like Beckham.

Access to all platforms is via stairs from the station building, which is home to a manned ticket office and a small newsagent. Southall is set to become far more accessible as part of the Crossrail development, which will see installation of step-free access to platforms as well as considerable renovation of the station buildings and facilities.
