Detail from a map of 1847 showing the station
Nine Elms Railway Station in the Londonmarker district of Batterseamarker was opened on 21 May 1838 as the London terminus of the London & Southampton Railway which on the same day became the London and South Western Railway. The building in the neo-classical style was designed by Sir William Tite. The station was inconveniently situated for travel to central London, with the necessity to complete the journey by road or by the steam boats connecting the station to points between Vauxhall and London Bridge..

The station was closed to passengers from 11 July 1848 when the L&SWR opened its metropolitan extension from Nine Elms to Waterloomarker (then called Waterloo Bridge Station), and the area adjacent to the station housed the L&SWR's carriage and wagon worksmarker until their relocation to Eastleighmarker in 1909. In 1941 the building was damaged by German bombs and it was demolished in the 1960s. The site became the flower section of the New Covent Garden Marketmarker in 1974.
