The station, seven miles (11km) from Waterloo, was opened on 27 July 1846, when the line to Richmond was built. When the first section of the Hounslow Loop Line was opened on 22 August 1849, Barnes became a junction station. On the London side of the station there are four tracks; one pair turns off along the Loop Line here.
Grade II listed, it was designed by the architect William Tite in 1846, and is the only survivor of four brick-built Tudor Gothic-style stations on the Richmond branch, the others being Putney, Mortlake and Richmond. The ticket office, adjacent to Platform 1, is now privately owned.
Platforms and rail services
There are four platform faces: the general service pattern sees fast trains pass through on the South Outer platform (platform 4) and the north face of the central island (platform 2), while stopping trains for both Richmond and the Loop Line use the remaining platforms. (On Sundays all trains stop on the island platforms.) Station buildings are on the central island, which is accessed by a separate footbridge alongside Rocks Lane.
