Station building

Wimbledon Park is an above-ground London Underground station in the London Borough of Wandsworth . It is in the Travelcard tariff zone 3 on Arthur Road, on the eastern edge of the park of the same name . In 2014, 1.81 million passengers used this station served by the District Line .

On June 3, 1889, the station was opened by the Metropolitan District Railway (MDR), the predecessor company of the District Line. The railway line opened on the same day, however, was built by the London and South Western Railway (L & SWR). Therefore, she leased the route to the MDR. The operation of electric subways began on August 27, 1905. The Southern Railway (SR), the successor to the L & SWR, stopped rail traffic on May 4, 1941. Until April 1, 1994, the section remained in the possession of the state railway company British Rail and was then transferred to London Underground. Because this section is still legally a railway today, the signals are managed by the railway infrastructure company Network Rail .
