Template:Use dmy dates Template:Use British English Template:Infobox London station Isleworth railway station is in the London Borough of Hounslow, in west London, and is in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 19 km (12 mi) south west of London Waterloo. The unmanned station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains.

A temporary station east of Wood Lane, some 400 metres northeast of the current site, opened as "Hounslow" on 22 August 1849 to allow a service to run until the bridges, embankment, and station buildings were completed. The name was changed to "Smallberry Green" after four months.

The present station opened on 1 February 1850 as "Isleworth". It was renamed "Spring Grove & Isleworth" in 1855 and became "Isleworth" again in August 1911.

Platform length at Isleworth is constrained by a bridge over a road at each end and selective door opening is required for recent longer stock (unlike 8-car slam-door trains which fitted). Present door selection is coarse and limited to disabling half the coaches.

Hounslow Council proposed that the Hounslow Loop Line be part of the Crossrail route with Crossrail trains calling at Isleworth station.<ref>A4</ref> but this was not included in the final route presented to Parliament in 2008.


The typical off-peak service from the station in trains per hour is:
