- Station Road, Upminster (map of this place)
- RM14 2TD
Upminster is served by the District Line services on the Tube network (of which it is the eastern terminus, in [Zone 6]?) and also by c2c, and one train services. If travelling to Central London from Upminster the c2c service is substancially faster than the tube. Tube tickets including Oyster and Prepay are valid for use on c2c services. There is a train every 10 minutes calling at Barking, West Ham & Fenchurch Street (for Tower Hill) most of the day Monday-Saturday.
The next tube station to the west of Upminster is Upminster Bridge. On the c2c route the next station is Barking and on the one route Upminster is the eastern terminus of a branch line from [Romford]? and the next station along is [Emerson Park]?.
The station was opened in 1885 by the [London Tilbury & Southend Railway]?. The electrified District Line service reached Upminster in 1932. In 2002 there were over 3.4 million entries and exits of the station. It is managed by c2c (Source: Transport for London).
Where to Alight
The exit steps are at the western end of the station so if on any train/tube coming from London get on the last carriage. If on the District Line and wishing to transfer to c2c eastbound beyond Upminster use the first carriage
Where to Get On
In the morning on the c2c the last carriage from the main exit steps tends to be the quietest. On the District Line the first carriage will be nowhere near the entrance steps of any station until East Ham so will stay reasonably empty.
