Crayford train station is situated within London Travelcard Zone 6, in the London Borough of Bexley, south-east London. The station runs regular passenger services to Dartford, Gravesend and London Cannon Street to the east, and London Charing Cross in the west. Built in the mid-1860s, Crayford has been expanded several times over the years - most notably in 1955, when both platforms were lengthened to accommodate larger trains. The station underwent another major redevelopment in 1968 when the old clapboard station buildings were completely rebuilt. The original station footbridge, though, still remains and is the oldest part of the station today. One of the UK's best-known greyhound tracks, established in the 1930s, backs on to the station, and a short walk from the station is the Tower Retail Park, with its well-known high-street shops, bars and eateries. Crayford's small high street, which runs through the centre of the town, has several independent retailers and cafes.
