Bow Road tube station

Bow Road tube station

Bow Road station is a London Underground station on the District and Hammersmith and City lines, located in Bow, east London. It is 200 metres' walk from Bow Church DLR station and is in Zone 2.

The station was opened in 1902 by the Whitechapel & Bow Railway (which was later incorporated into the District Line), with the Hammersmith & City Line (then the Metropolitan Line) following in 1936. The station booking hall is now a Grade II listed building.

Bow Road marks the point where westbound trains from Upminster and Barking enter a tunnel; the gradient of the tunnel approach, which is to the east of the station, is 1 in 28, the steepest on the entire tube network.

Nearby, there used to be a Bow Road railway station on the Great Eastern Railway, which was on the opposite side of Bow Road. It closed in 1949.
