Parsons Green is a London Underground station on the Wimbledon branch of the District line. It is between Fulham Broadway and Putney Bridge stations and is in Zone 2. The station is located on Parsons Green a short distance north of the green itself. The station is about halfway between Fulham Road (A304) and New Kings Road (A308). The station was previously a train-operator depot, until functions were transferred to Earl's Court.


Designed by a Mr Clemence under the supervision of John Wolfe-Barry, the station was opened on 1 March 1880 when the Metropolitan District Railway (now the District line) extended its line south from West Brompton to Putney Bridge.


Parsons Green is an intermediate terminating point for both District line services. Below are the seven sidings explained:

Past plans

Parsons Green was a proposed stop on the Chelsea-Hackney Line. Known now as Crossrail 2. It would have either supplemented or replaced the existing District line service on much of the Wimbledon Branch.

North of the station, the line would have branched off into a new tunneled section that could carry it into Victoria station, via a new station on the Kings Road, Chelsea station. Crossrail 2 will be built to National Rail standards and will go to Wimbledon via Clapham Junction instead. The route was safeguarded in 1991 and again in 2007.
