Bow Road is a London Underground station on the District and Hammersmith & City lines. It is on Bow Road in Bow, east London, about 300 m (980 ft) from Bow Church DLR station and is in fare zone 2. Out of station interchange (OSI) is allowed between the stations.
The station was opened in 1902 by the Whitechapel and Bow Railway (which was later incorporated into the District line), with the Hammersmith & City line (then the Metropolitan line) following in 1936.
Ownership of the station passed to London Underground in 1950.
The station booking hall is a Grade II listed building.
Bow Road marks the point where westbound trains from Upminster and Barking enter a tunnel; the gradient of the tunnel approach, which is to the east of the station, is 1 in 28, the steepest on the tube network. The eastern half of both station platforms are in a partially open cutting, while the western half is within a cut and cover tunnel below the A11 road.
