The Hammersmith and City line is a line of the London Underground, coloured salmon pink on the London Underground Map, running between Hammersmith in West London and Barking in East London.
Formerly part of the Metropolitan line, part of it is the oldest underground railway in the world, as it includes the first part of the London Underground, the section between Paddington and
Farringdon, which opened on 10 January 1863. It ranks 10th out of the 11 lines in passenger numbers. Out of the 29 stations served, 14 are underground. The original line opened on the 13 June 1864,
although Hammersmith moved to a different location in 1868. With the exception of the two-stop Waterloo and City Line and the East London Line (which is no longer a part of the Underground) it is the
least used line on the Underground (as well as the least used sub-surface line).
