The station was opened in 1932 and is built in the utilitarian concrete style of the 1930s. It has an island platform with the ticket office in the overbridge opposite the platform entrance. Access to the station is from either side of the line, the west side from Stoneleigh Broadway, and the east side from Station Approach, off Stoneleigh Park Road. In 2013, the platform was extended, so that 10 carriage trains can stop at the station. The extended part has not yet opened though.
During the 1980s-1990s the station won many awards for "Best Station" due to its well kept flower beds set between the platforms.
