Bayswater tube station is a London Underground station in Travelcard Zone 1 on the Circle and District lines. It is between Notting Hill Gate and Paddington.

Bayswater was opened October 1, 1868, just 5 years after the London Underground started. It was renamed several times: to Bayswater (Queen's Road) & Westbourne Grove in 1923, to Bayswater (Queen's Road) in 1933 and to Bayswater (Queensway) in 1946. The suffix was eventually dropped.

It has a single entrance which opens up to the west side of Queensway (W2) in the City of Westminster. At the southern end of Queensway is a Central line London Underground station, Queensway.

Bayswater Road is famous in English literature, including the novels of John Galsworthy, collectively known as the Forsyte Saga.
