Hammersmith District and Piccadilly Line (ZHA)

There are two tube stations called Hammersmith (not the only time different stations have the same name there are also two Edgware Roads!). The two stations serve different lines and are separated by the Hammersmith Broadway road. The other station is a terminus of the Hammersmith & City and Circle Lines.

This Hammersmith station serves the District and Piccadilly Lines and was opened in 1874 by the District Railway [1]. For a time it was the Western terminus of the railway until the line was extended to Ravenscourt Park in 1877. The Midland Railway also ran services to Hammersmith for a couple of years between 1878 and 1880 though were not a success.

The Great Northern, Brompton & Piccadilly Railway reached Hammersmith in 1906, the station being the line's terminus of what became the Piccadilly Line until 1932. The station was enlarged and the main station building rebuilt as part of the extension. The station buildings were demolished in the early 1990s and the station was incorporated into a new shopping centre with a bus station (and interchange).
