Kenton is a National Rail suburban rail station on the Watford DC line and the London Underground Bakerloo line, situated on Kenton Road in Kenton, north-west London. The station is served by London Overground (Arriva Rail London) and London Underground Limited services. It has an out of station interchange (OSI) with Northwick Park station on the London Underground's Metropolitan line.


The station was one of several built on the London and North Western Railway's "New Line" from Camden to Watford Junction which enabled local services from Watford Junction station to reach Euston station and Broad Street station in London. The New Line was mostly alongside main line of the London and Birmingham Railway in 1837.[citation needed]

A London Midland Class 350 train speeds past Kenton on the West Coast Main Line.

Kenton station was opened on 15 June 1912.[5] It has only ever had platforms on the New Line; parallel main line services call at Harrow and Wealdstone station, one stop to the north, with some also calling at Wembley Central station, three stops to the south.[citation needed]

Bakerloo line services began on 16 April 1917.[6] On 24 September 1982, Bakerloo line services to Kenton ended when services north of Stonebridge Park were ended.[6] The closure was short-lived, and the Bakerloo line service was reinstated on 4 June 1984.[6]

The station's former coal yard on the east side of the railway, no longer needed for the trains, is now occupied by a Sainsbury's supermarket.[citation needed]


  • London Overground (Watford DC Line) 3 tph in each direction.
  • London Underground (Bakerloo line) 6 tph in each direction.


London Buses routes 114, 183, 223, H9, H10 and H18 and H19 serve the station.
