Chislehurst railway station serves the small suburban district of Chislehurst in the London Borough of Bromley, within London Travelcard Zone 5.
Originally opened in the summer of 1865, the station was briefly called Bickley Park, before being renamed and reopened in March 1868 on an alternative site. Today, the station runs regular passenger services to Orpington, Sevenoaks, London Charing Cross and London Cannon Street.
The area's most notable attraction is the Chislehurst Caves, less than a five-minute walk from the station. The caves are thought to be of ancient origin, originally used to mine flint and chalk, and often used as a mass air-raid shelter for local people during WWII. In more recent times, the caves have been used as a live music venue, hosting world-renowned artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Who and The Rolling Stones.
Chislehurst High Street snakes through the centre of the suburb and is home to a vast array of pubs, bars and international cuisine.
