The original station opened in 1904 and the current station, moved slightly, opened in 1938. It is the terminus of the Uxbridge branches of both the Metropolitan line and the Piccadilly line.
The station was designed by Charles Holden and LH Bucknell and features a red brick facade, sculptures representing stylised ‘winged wheels’ by Joseph Armitage, and Erwin Bossanyi’s stained-glass panels in the booking hall.
Several historical events have taken place in Uxbridge, including the negotiations between King Charles I and the Parliamentary Army during the English Civil War in the 1600s at a public house that still stands today, now named the Crown & Treaty. The Battle of Britain Bunker is also housed in Uxbridge.
1794 saw the opening of The Grand Junction Canal, which linked Uxbridge with Birmingham.
