Trains to Charlton arrive at a small modern station that offers services to central London and Kent. The station is a stone’s throw from The Valley, home of the Charlton Athletic Football Club, the southeast-London suburb’s most famous export. South of the station lies Charlton Village, an attractive town centre whose high street – itself called ‘The Village’ – contains a rich mix of major retailers, independent businesses and traditional local pubs. Large green spaces like Charlton Park, Hornfair Park and the adjacent Woolwich Common offer a good balance to the industrial area to the north. Close to the Thames and to historic Greenwich, Charlton also boasts a Jacobean manor house and a significant industrial history – the Charlton Riverside area north of the station has been active since the 19th century, and is home to the Thames Barrier, a major flood defence whose visitor centre is an attraction in its own right.

Station details & facilities

Charlton station has two platforms, both below the level of the main concourse but accessible step-free. Platform 1 can be accessed via the main concourse, footbridge and lift, while platform 2 can be accessed via the footbridge or via a pedestrianised area just north of the bridge on Charlton Church Lane. Trains west towards London Charing Cross and London Cannon Street depart from platform 1, and trains east into Kent depart from platform 2.
