Burdett Road was a railway station on Burdett Road in Mile End, east London, that opened in September 1871. It was on the London and Blackwall Extension Railway (LBER) which linked the London and Blackwall Railway (LBR) from Fenchurch Street station at Stepney with the Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) and London, Tilbury and Southend Railway (LTSR) at Bow. It was jointly owned by the LBR and ECR.
It remained open for nearly 70 years, but with the nearby Mile End station on the London Underground proving much more popular, and the demands placed on the railway system by the Second World War, the station was closed on 21 April 1941 and never re-opened. The surrounding area was heavily redeveloped after the war to make way for Mile End Park, and today little trace remains of Burdett Road station; the westbound platform space survives but is derelict.
