Holland Park

Holland Park. In the park is Holland House, a historic Jacobean mansion begun in 1605 and attributed to John Thorpe, which was originally called Cope's Castle as it was built for Sir Walter Cope. The House passed by marriage to Sir Henry Rich, who was created Earl of Holland in Lincolnshire in 1624, and who gave his name to the house and park. The whole estate was sold to the London County Council in 1952.

Prior to the station's opening the name of LANSDOWN ROAD was considered, but it opened as HOLLAND PARK on 30 July 1900.
