The Metropolitan Railway (Harrow and Uxbridge Railway) constructed the line between Harrow on the Hill and Uxbridge, opened on 4 July 1904 with an intermediate station at Ruislip. At first services were operated by steam trains, but electrification was completed on 1 January 1905.
Development in north Middlesex over the next two decades lead to the opening of additional stations to encourage the growth of new residential areas. Hillingdon was the last of these to open, on 10 December 1923, with Metropolitan and District lines services.
On 23 October 1933 the District line replaced the Piccadilly line. Between the mid-1930s and the mid-1950s the station was named Hillingdon (Swakeleys).
The station was demolished to enable the rerouting of the A40 (Western Avenue) through the site. A new station opened to the south in 1994, and received that year's Underground Station of the Year award. The station was identified in July 2011 as one of the London Borough of Hillingdon's locally listed buildings.
The station has a car park and is accessible for those with disabilities without using stairs or escalators. It has a staffed ticket office.
