Perivale is a London Underground station in Perivale in north-west London. It is located on the West Ruislip branch of the Central line, between Greenford and Hanger Lane stations, and is in Travelcard Zone 4.

History

The Great Western Railway (GWR) opened Perivale Halt on its New North Main Line (now the Acton–Northolt line) on 2 May 1904. This was closed when the current London Underground station was opened on 30 June 1947, as part of the extension of the Central line to West Ruislip. The station was designed in 1938 by Brian Lewis, later the GWR's chief architect, but completion was delayed by the Second World War. The finished building was modified by the architect Frederick Francis Charles Curtis. A planned tower and extended wing were never built, leaving the station smaller than intended.[7] In July 2011, the station was one of 16 London Underground stations that were given Grade II listed status.[8]

Connections

London Buses route 297 serves the station.

TV appearances

The front of the station featured briefly in the first episode of the 2005 BBC series The Thick of It.[9] It also appeared in the first episode of the 1994 BBC series The Fast Show, featuring John Thomson.[10]
