The station, 7 miles 7 chains (11.4 km) down the line from London Waterloo, was opened on 27 July 1846, when the line to Richmond was built. When the first section of the Hounslow Loop Line was opened on 22 August 1849, Barnes became a junction station. On the London side of the station, there are four tracks; one pair turns off along the Loop Line here.
Grade II listed, it was designed by the architect John Thomas Emmett in 1846, and is the only survivor of four brick-built Tudor Gothic-style stations on the Richmond branch, the others being Putney, Mortlake and Richmond. The ticket office, adjacent to Platform 1, is now privately owned.
