The original building was typical of those designed by Harry Bell Measures for the stations of the Central London Railway that opened on 30 July 1900. It was given a flat roof in the hope that commercial development would take place on top, as at Queensway station, but so far this has not happened. The building was refurbished in the 1990s.
On 28 July 1958 one passenger died as a result of a fire on a Central line train at Holland Park. There was an incident in August 2013 in which smoke started to fill the station after a train's brakes malfunctioned.
The station today
The station was closed for lift replacement works and refurbishment since 2 January 2016, and reopened in August of the same year. This station was the last station of the Central Line underground stations retain the original 1950's signages until the refurbishment.
