With an opening date of 1836, Deptford lays claim to the title of oldest passenger station in London – in fact, one of the oldest suburban stations in the world. Travellers today could be forgiven for thinking it is a lot younger than that, as the station building is a modern glass and steel structure that was added during a refurbishment in 2012. Services to Deptford include regular trains from London Cannon Street, Dartford, Crayford and Barnehurst. The station is built on a viaduct at the point the railway crosses Deptford High Street, a bustling shopping area and home to Deptford Market every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. A short walk south of the station will bring you to the Albany Theatre, a community arts and music centre that has existed on the site for over a hundred years. Today it’s home to a varied programme of theatrical, spoken word and musical performances.
