Westbourne Park is a London Underground station on the Circle and Hammersmith and City lines, between Ladbroke Grove and Royal Oak stations, and in Travelcard Zone 2 in The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea . Although the Metropolitan Railway had been extended to Notting Hill and Hammersmith on 1 June 1864 the first station by this name did not open until 1 February 1866. This closed on 31 October 1871 to be replaced the following day by a new station constructed to the east of the original. In February 1913 a bomb - possibly planted by the Suffragettes - was discovered at Westbourne Park station. It is in close proximity with Harrow Road W9.
Adjoining the station is the Tower Transit bus garage.

There were once British Rail platforms on the Great Western Main Line, but these closed in March 1992. Another station on the Hammersmith & City line, Royal Oak, also had a GWR station, but this shut with the arrival of the underground in 1871. Today the first stop out of Paddington is at Acton Main Line.
