There are those who believe the sloping Chelsfield Tunnel just past Chelsfield train station served as Edith Nesbit's inspiration for her popular children's classic 'The Railway Children'. If so, the station has changed somewhat since those days with the original buildings replaced in the 1970s. Today, the train services from Chelsfield station principally serve London's south-east region while linking London Charing Cross directly with Sevenoaks in Kent. Although it only has 2 platforms Chelsfield train station is a busy one with trains running in both directions approximately every 30 minutes.

For those looking to explore the immediate vicinity from the station, local bus services are a short walk away in Chelsfield village. Within a 5 mile radius can be found such things as Down House which was the home of Charles Darwin for 40 years, High Elms Country Park and the man-made caves at Chislehurst. Of course, the buzz and multiple attractions of London are also on the relative doorstep of Chelsfield railway station. For example, a 16 minute rail journey from Chelsfield delivers its passengers to London Bridge where there is plenty to see and do. Close by are such iconic tourist spots as the Tower of London, the Tate Modern or Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. If escaping the city is more the aim, the plentiful gardens, Roman remains and a host of historic properties in Sevenoaks can be reached in just 11 minutes. Included in the Sevenoaks' attractions menu is the 15th century 365-roomed Knole stately home. Beyond Sevenoaks, direct train services become more limited with destinations such as Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells served by 6 trains per day.
