Hounslow railway station, on the Hounslow Loop Line, is in the London Borough of Hounslow, in west London, and is in Travelcard Zone 5. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains. It was opened by the London and South Western Railway on 1 February 1850 on completion of the bridges and embankments at Isleworth. A temporary station had opened as "Hounslow" some 400 metres northeast of the present Isleworth station on 22 August 1849 to allow a service to run until the loop was connected, its name was changed to "Smallberry Green" after four months.
The Station has now been revamped with a £650,000 facelift which took four months to complete. The renovations include a new, larger booking hall and toilet, better access for people with disabilities and a low energy lighting system.
The typical off-peak service from the station in trains per hour is:
- 4 direct to Waterloo via Brentford
- 2 circuitously to Waterloo via Twickenham and Richmond
- 2 to Weybridge
On Sundays, there are two trains per hour to and from Waterloo, one of which continues to Woking and the other to Twickenham and Richmond.
