The sandy-coloured brick buildings that welcome passengers travelling to and from Erith station are extremely well-preserved - which is impressive, s they date back to its opening in 1849, a time when the town on the Thames had a short-lived period as a riverside resort. Today it is predominantly a suburban neighbourhood, with commuters making use of regular services to London Cannon Street via Greenwich or Sidcup. Other services from the station include trains to Slade Green and Dartford. From the station it is a short walk along Bronze Age Way to the Erith roundabout and the town centre - most local shops and restaurants are located between the railway and the River Thames. The promenade and the Riverside Gardens are popular with visitors and locals alike, and Erith is the also starting point for the London Outer Orbital Path, a 150-mile waymarked trail known as the 'M25 for walkers'.
