West Drayton station is right alongside the Grand Union Canal, to the north of the town centre in the far west of London. Situated on the Great Western main line, it is served by stopping services between London Paddington and Reading, plus two trains per hour to Oxford. West Drayton is just inside the M25, with the intersection between the M25 and M4 just over a mile away and Heathrow Airport about three miles away. Passengers can connect with train services to Heathrow at the next station eastbound - Hayes and Harlington - or buses towards the airport go from right outside the station. West Drayton was one of the original stations on Isambard Kingdom Brunel's famous Great Western Railway. It opened in 1838 at the same time as the first section of the line from London Paddington to Maidenhead. The station was relocated later in the 19th century and the station buildings date back to that time.
