Leyton station has been open since 1856, served by the Great Eastern Railway, and became part of the Central line in 1947.
In 2011 work began to double the station’s capacity in order to cope with the additional passengers destined for the nearby Olympic Park during the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Leyton is home to Leyton Orient F.C. stadium, the New Spitalfields Market – the UK’s leading horticultural market specialising in exotic fruit and vegetables – and Coronation Gardens, a park built in 1902 to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII that features a fountain, landscaped gardens and a maze.
