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.
