On 20 November 1905 the Great Central Railway opened a new route for freight trains between Neasden Junction and Northolt Junction. Passenger services from Marylebone began on 1 March 1906, when three new stations were opened: Wembley Hill, Template:Stnlnk and South Harrow. On 2 April 1906 these services were extended to Northolt Junction. On 19 July 1926 South Harrow station was renamed Sudbury Hill Harrow.

The service was reduced to peak hours only from 7 September 1964, due to a lack of demand. There was a temporary closure from 22 September 1990 to 7 October 1990. In November 2004, however, following concerted efforts by the London Transport Users Committee, an hourly off-peak service was also provided. The station is close to the Sudbury Hill tube station on the Piccadilly Line.
