Kensington Olympia

Kensington Olympia is recorded as Cheninton in the Domesday Book and the name is derived from the personal name of the Saxon Cynesige and the Old English tun, a 'farm' - it means 'the farm of Cynesige', another local agriculturist. It has had many variant spellings, with Kenesingeton recorded in 1274. Olympia is the name of the huge exhibition building opened in 1886 and extended to the main road in 1930.

The station was opened by the West London Railway as KENSINGTON on 27 May 1844; re-sited farther north 2 June 1862; re-named KENSINGTON (ADDISON ROAD) in 1868; re-named KENSINGTON (OLYMPIA) 19 December 1946.
