West Brompton

West Brompton signifies Broom Town with suggestions of a wide common - and means the common with the broom trees, near a town'.

Prior to the station's opening the name RICHMOND ROAD was planned, reflecting the name of this part of Old Brompton Road which lasted into the 1920s. It was opened as WEST BROMPTON on 12 April 1869.

West Brompton

The original station building at West Brompton, seen here about 1910, is still recognisable today.
