Gloucester Road Station

Zone 1 Station / Streetmap Link / Journey Planner

Lines Served

Circle Line: clockwise <--- High Street Kensington <--- Gloucester Road ---> South Kensington ---> east
District Line: west <--- Earl's Court <---
Piccadilly Line: west <--- Earl's Court <--- Gloucester Road ---> South Kensington ---> east


This is only shown as an interchange between the Circle Line and the Piccadilly Line, the reason being that Earl's Court Station and South Kensington Station offer better interchanges with the District Line.

Access to the Piccadilly Line platforms is by lift only; Piccadilly Line trains do not stop here if there is no fire brigade cover.

The track system around this station was changed in 1999, as part of the overhaul of the Circle Line. As a consequence, eastbound District Line and anticlockwise Circle Line share a platform, which is less useful than previously, where there were separate platforms. Westbound trains come in on different platforms for the Circle and District lines. There is cross-platform interchange between the clockwise (westbound) Circle and the eastbound District/Circle.

Architecture and Points of Interest
