West Brompton is a London Underground, London Overground, and National Rail station in west London, offering trains to Clapham Junction, South Croydon, Hampstead Heath, and Stratford. The station sits on Old Brompton Road, to the south of Earls Court Exhibition Centre and to the west of Brompton Cemetery. A Grade II listed building, it dates back to 1866 and is a charming affair, with arced window frames and soft yellow brickwork.
West Brompton is largely residential, but there's still plenty here for the casual visitor. Brompton Cemetery offers a fascinating wonder - it was here that children's author Beatrix Potter took the names of many of her animal characters. Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club, is also nearby, as is the increasingly popular Finborough Theatre. For nightlife, be sure to visit The Troubadour, where Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon played in the 1960s.
West Brompton station has one main entrance for both mainline and Underground passengers. Platforms are accessed via a bridge beyond the ticket barriers. District Line trains call at platforms 1 and 2, and London Overground trains at platforms 3 and 4. There is a partition between platforms 2 and 3, but they're on the same level so it's easy to pass directly between them. Both London Overground platforms have step-free access.
