Westbourne Park

Westbourne Park was recorded as Westburn in 1222 and is derived from the Old English westan and burnam, 'place'- means the place west of the stream'. Paddington was the sister village on the east bank. The road here was an ancient lane winding through the old Westbourne Farm. The Green was recorded in 1680 hence the Park, now a road.

The station was opened as WESTBOURNE PARK on 1 February 1866.
