South Ealing station was opened as a stop on the District Railway (later the District line) on 1 May 1883. These trains were initially steam-powered, but the line has been electrified since 1905.

The station has been served by the Piccadilly line since 29 April 1935. It was modernised between 1935 and 1936, with the original buildings replaced, the eastbound platform receiving a new concrete canopy and waiting room and electric lights being installed.[10]

The District line service was withdrawn in 1964.[10]

The station building was again replaced in 1983.[10] It was refurbished once more in 2006.[8]
