Cheam in the London Borough of Sutton is a large suburban village with a station on the Sutton & Mole Valley Lines between Sutton and Epsom. The station, which lies just 16 miles from London Bridge, was originally on the 1844 planned route for the ill-fated London-to-Portsmouth atmospheric railway, on which trains were to propelled using differential air pressure. Instead the station joined the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway in 1847. Today, the station is served by frequent passenger services on Southern Railway trains to London Victoria and Epsom, with additional services leaving for Horsham and Dorking. Trains from Cheam into central London take just over half an hour. Cheam village has a Waitrose, Prezzo and Pizza Express alongside a number of independent stores and cafes, but more excitingly has a number of historic buildings, including the fantastically named Nonsuch Park and Tudor-built Nonsuch Palace, as well as a large conservation area.
