Notting Hill Gate

Notting Hill Gate was recorded as Knottynghull in 1356 but the origin of the name is in some doubt. It may be taken from the Old English cnottlng, a 'hill', or more probably it is the name (or nickname) for a family who settled in this area in early times, called Knottying. Recorded as Noding Hill in 1680 and with the present spelling at a later date. A gate formerly stood at the junction of Kensington Church Street and the main road and was removed in 1864.

The station was opened as NOTTING HILL GATE on 1 October 1868.
