Bayswater
 (голосов: 0)
BayswaterBayswater was recorded as Bayard's Watering in 1380 and has had many variant spellings before being named as Bay(e)swater by 1659. The original Bayard's Watering was the place where the Westbourne Stream crossed the Oxford Road (now Bayswater Road) and is possibly derived from the Bayard family who once lived in this area.

The station was opened as BAYSWATER on 1 October 1868. Later known as BAYSWATER (QUEEN'S ROAD) and then QUEEN'S ROAD, BAYSWATER. Re-named BAYSWATER (QUEEN'S ROAD) & WESTBOURNE GROVE on 20 July 1922. The name reverted to BAYSWATER in 1933.
