Perivale is a London Underground station in Perivale in north-west London. It is located on the West Ruislip branch of the Central line, between Greenford and Hanger Lane stations, and is in Travelcard Zone 4.


The Great Western Railway opened "Perivale Halt" on 2 May 1904 but it was closed when the current London Underground station was opened on 30 June 1947. It was designed in 1938 by Brian Lewis, later Chief Architect to the Great Western Railway, but completion was delayed by the Second World War. The finished building was modified by the architect Frederick Francis Charles Curtis. A planned tower and extended wing were never constructed, leaving the station smaller than intended.[3] In July 2011 the station was one of 16 London Underground stations that were made a Grade II listed building.[4]


London Buses route 297 serves the station.

TV appearances[edit]

The front of the station featured briefly in the first episode of BBC TV show The Thick Of It (2005).[5]
