West Brompton is an area of south west London. It is probably best known for its cemetery and its Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre, which, in its heyday, was Britain’s premiere exhibition and event venue. Sadly, the exhibition centre was demolished in 2017 to make way for new developments. The cemetery, founded in 1837, however, is considered one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries built in London during the 19th century and continues to attract visitors from the UK and around the world, who wish to visit the graves of the numerous famous and interesting people who have been buried there.
Until the late 18th century, the area was mainly fields and market gardens and was then identified as a healthy location for hospitals. During the 19th century a number of hospitals were built in the area. Around the same time the Kensington Canal was built, which was eventually filled and turned into a railway and residential housing started to appear. All of this contributed to the rapid urbanisation of West Brompton.
The name Brompton means ‘broom village’. There are no actual records indicating where Brompton, neighbouring West Brompton got its name, but its first recorded mention was in 1292. The Earls Court Exhibition Centre brought many famous names to West Brompton when it opened in 1887 and its first event was an American Wild West Show. As well as Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley performing, there was a group of First Nation Americans, three of whom died in Britain and were subsequently buried in Brompton Cemetery. The show coincided with the Golden Jubilee and Queen Victoria was in attendance, sealing the reputation of the venue as one of the best in the country.
West Brompton is now mostly residential with shops and restaurants catering to the local community. It has the highest concentration of Italian immigrants outside of Italy. It is currently undergoing some major redevelopment due to a project supported by the Mayor, Boris Johnson, but opposed by many who wish to protect the history and tranquillity of the area.

West Brompton Station opened in 1866. It was designed by Sir John Fowler, the chief engineer of the Metropolitan and District Railway. During WWII there were so many stations damaged on the line serving West Brompton, that the rail station was closed. The underground station continued to operate, and the over ground rail line remained in use for freight. Services didn’t resume until 1994 and the rail station wasn’t officially reopened until 1999. The same entrance serves both services and there are lifts at the station instead of escalators.
