It opened in 1873 as Kensal Green, replacing Kensal Green & Harlesden railway station which opened in 1861 at the crossing of Green Lane (later Wrottesley Road), lying in between the present station and Willesden Junction. The present station was renamed Kensal Rise in 1890. It is close to the newer Kensal Green station built on the Watford DC Line in 1916. Both stations are now served by London Overground (since late 2007), though Kensal Green is managed by London Underground, being additionally served by the Bakerloo line.
The typical off-peak service at the station in trains per hour is:
- 4 westbound to Richmond.
- 2 westbound to Clapham Junction.
- 6 trains per hour eastbound to Stratford.
