Holland Park is a London Underground station. On the Central Line, it lies between Shepherd's Bush and Notting Hill Gate stations, in Travelcard Zone 2.

History

The original building was typical of those designed by Harry Bell Measures for the stations of the Central London Railway that opened on 30 July 1900. It was given a flat roof in the hope that commercial development would take place on top, as at Queensway station, but so far this has not happened. The building was refurbished in the 1990s.

On 28 July 1958 one passenger died as a result of a fire on a Central Line train at Holland Park.

The station today

The tube station is named after Holland Park, a park in west London, although the term also refers to the residential area to the north of the park.
