Trains to Caterham

Caterham station is at the end of the branch line that divides from the London to Brighton main line at Purley. Trains from Caterham operate through Croydon to London Victoria and London Bridge via Forest Hill, with a usual service of two direct trains to each destination per hour plus other services at peak times requiring changes. Average journey times are about 50 minutes to Victoria and 55 minutes to London Bridge. A station was first built in Caterham in 1856, but that was replaced by the current station when it opened at the dawn of the 20th century on 1st January 1900. When you step out of the station today, you’re right in the town’s main shopping area and just across the road from the East Surrey Museum, which tells the story of the area right back to the Stone Age. For onward local travel, there are bus stops directly outside on Station Avenue and around the corner on Croydon Road.
