Barons Court is in the West of London, in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The immediate area lacks a lot of facilities. There are few restaurants and pubs nearby and a limited number of shops on the North End Road, but there is easy access to leisure and shopping facilities and nightlife in both Hammersmith and Fulham. There are a couple of hotels near Barons Court. The Novotel London West (***) has a beauty salon, pool and gym. Castletown and Perham House (****) are self-catering apartments in the surrounding Victorian mansion blocks. They have fully equipped kitchens and entertainment systems including plasma TV, DVD player and Hi Fi. If you want a bit more choice, there is a huge selection of accommodation in the nearby Earl’s Court area. The standard of the hotels ranges from 2 to 4 star. This is the home of the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre, where you can see a variety of shows, fairs and entertainments throughout the year.
Barons Court is in Zone 2. It’s on the District and Piccadilly Lines and is found in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, in the West of the city. If you’re travelling to or from Heathrow Airport and need to change lines, it is a good place to do it as they both use the same platform; no steps or escalators to negotiate with your luggage.
The station opened in 1905 and has many original Art Nouveau glazed tiles and friezes. The wooden benches with the name of the station on enamelled metal panels are unique. The station is less than 500 metres from the next one along the line, West Kensington Station.
