Brockley station lies on the main line between London Bridge and Brighton, within Zone 2. The station opened in 1871, but now looks markedly different from its original incarnation, having been dramatically redesigned in the modern era - a 2010 refurbishment saw it upgraded due to the extension of the East London Line.
Four trains per hour leave platform 1 for Dalston Junction, London Bridge and Highbury & Islington, with regular services departing from platform 2 to West Croydon, Crystal Palace and London Victoria.
Despite its urban setting, Brockley is well known within the local area for its wide open spaces, particularly Blythe Hill, Brockley & Ladywell Cemetery, and the aptly-named Hilly Fields, which offers superb views north into central London. Just west of the station is Brockley Nature Reserve, an area of stunning woodland that is home to over thirty species of bird.
