Kenton station is a railway station served by London Underground ( Bakerloo Line) and London Overground (Euston to Watford Junction) trains. It is located on the south side of Kenton Road in Kenton, a short walk from Northwick Park station on the London Underground Metropolitan Line. More specifically, it is between Harrow & Wealdstone to the north, and South Kenton to the south, in Travelcard Zone 4.

History
The station was one of several built on the London and North Western Railway's " New Line" from Camden to Watford Junction which enabled local services from Watford Junction station to Euston station and Broad Street station in London. The New Line was mostly alongside the United Kingdom's first main line railway which had been previously opened by the London and Birmingham Railway in 1837. Kenton station was opened on 15 June 1912. . It has only ever been served by trains operating on the New Line; parallel main line services call at Harrow and Wealdstone station, one stop to the north, with some also calling at Wembley Central station, three stops to the south. Bakerloo line services began on 16 April 1917. On 24 September 1982, Bakerloo Line services to Kenton ended when services north of Stonebridge Park were ended. The closure was short-lived, and the Bakerloo Line service was reinstated on 4 June 1984. The station's former coal yard on the east side of the railway, no longer needed for the trains, is now occupied by a Sainsbury's supermarket. Northwick Park Underground station, served by the Metropolitan Line, is about five minutes walk away.
