Traditionally an agricultural town, Upminster was only incorporated into Greater London in the mid-60s – and its rural roots are noticeable to this day, with the town boasting one of the few remaining mills in Greater London. The area has long been known for its good transport links, having first been connected to central London by rail in 1885. Since then, the station has undergone several major redevelopments, most notably in the early 1930s, when an expansion project added new station buildings that still stand today. Upminster station lies in the London Borough of Havering within London Travelcard Zone 6, and runs both National Rail and London Underground services. Made up of seven platforms, it acts as the eastern terminus of the District Line – in fact, it is the easternmost station on the London Underground network. As well as serving the District Line, the station runs regular main line services to Southend Central and Romford.
