Trains to Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace station dates back to 1854, and was built to provide serve the famous exhibition building of the same name, which had been moved from Hyde Park to this southeast London suburb in 1851. The Crystal Palace itself burnt down in 1936, and today its former site is a popular public park right outside the station. Look out for scattered hints at its former glory: towering ornamental trees, the remains of grand terraces and statues, and the famous Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, which are arranged around an attractive lake at the bottom of the park. Modern Crystal Palace is a buzzing, arty commuter area whose station serves London Bridge and Victoria - and whose growth accelerated when the London Overground line added a connection to Canary Wharf in 2010. Head uphill from the station to find Crystal Palace's popular 'Triangle', a trio of streets packed with independent shops, friendly pubs and buzzing local restaurants.
