Hounslow East Underground station
The route through Hounslow East station was opened by the Metropolitan District Railway on 21 July 1884 as a branch to Hounslow Barracks (now Hounslow West). What is now Hounslow East station (initially called Hounslow Town) was opened on 2nd May 1909. On 1st December 1925 the station was given its present name at the same time that Hounslow West and Hounslow Central received their current names. Piccadilly Line services, which had been running as far as Northfields since January 1933 were extended to run to Hounslow West on 13th March 1933, and from this date, the branch was operated jointly by both lines until District Line services were withdrawn on 9th October 1964. The station was recently rebuilt with a modern glass enclosed ticket hall which can be seen on the other side of the tracks here. This replaced a small entrance dating from 1909 located on the north side.
