The Great Western Railway opened "Perivale Halt" on 2 May 1904 but was closed when the current London Underground station was opened on 30 June 1947. It was designed in 1938 but completion was delayed by the Second World War. A planned tower and extended wing were never constructed, leaving the station smaller than intended. In July 2011 the station was one of 16 London Underground stations made a Grade II listed building,
