The Hammersmith & City line is represented on the London Tube map by a pink line. It connects West London's Hammersmith station with Barking in the East end and was originally part of the Metropolitan line, including the world's oldest underground railway.

The original Hammersmith station moved from another location in 1868, four years after the line opened.  Ever since, it has been one of the least-used lines on the London Underground and is currently 10th out of the 11 lines by passenger number. Almost half of the stations on the Hammersmith & City line are cut-and-cover underground stations.

The line has no unique stations - every single one of the 29 stations is shared with another tube line.  The last few, between Liverpool St and Hammersmith, joined the Circle line in 2009.

The name of the line is from the Hammersmith and City Railway - a 3 mile section from Westbourne Park through to Hammersmith which opened in 1864.
