District Line

The District Line is a line with five sections. It passes through east London, crosses the centre between Tower Hill and Earl’s Court, and runs through parts of west and south-west London. In addition to the spinal line between Upminster and Richmond, there are three branches at Earl’s Court and one more at Turnham Green.

The District Line is the only Underground line to cross the River Thames above ground, at Putney and at Kew.
