Trains to Blackheath chug right into the centre of this charming Greater London town, passing under the aptly named Tranquil Vale upon which the station building stands. Built in 1849 in London brick, the grade II listed building still has many of its original structures at platform level. Famously, the station is a vital part of moving London Marathon runners around in April, but it shuts down completely for the town's November firework show. Renowned as one of London's more affluent suburbs since the 17th century, by the mid-1800s, with a little help from the arrival of rail, Blackheath was fast becoming a popular shopping destination - and boutique shops and cafe culture are still very much the hallmarks of a daytrip to the ÔVillage'. Historically, the Heath itself was a famous gathering place for armies set to invade London, but nowadays you're more likely to encounter cheerful dog walkers. Blackheath Halls, a 600-seater concert venue is an opulent, timeless building a minute's walk up the hill from the station and Blackheath farmers' market takes place in the station's car park every Sunday.
