Stepney Green is a London Underground station in Mile End Road in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in Greater London. It is between Whitechapel and Mile End on the District line and the Hammersmith & City line, and is in Travelcard Zone 2.
The station was opened in 1902 by the Whitechapel and Bow Railway, a joint venture between the District Railway and the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. The new railway connected the District Railway at Whitechapel with the London, Tilbury and Southend at Bow.
Electrified District Railway services started in 1905. Hammersmith and City line services (then part of the Metropolitan line) started in 1936. The station passed to London Underground in 1950.
It is a sub-surface station with two platforms. The ticket office is above ground and connected to the platforms by stairs. The layout and design of the station is largely unchanged with many original features intact. On the Westbound platform you will find one of the common countdown timers (found in most tube stations now) producing an estimated time of arrival (ETA) for the next train, however the Eastbound platform still has one of the old signs which merely indicates the intended destination of the next train, with no indication of the ETA.
