Gidea Park in a Travelcard Zone 6 station in the borough of Havering, just 13 miles and 27 minutes from London Liverpool Street. The station opened in 1910 as as Gidea Park & Squirrels Heath, and has been serving local commuters for over 100 years - it's set to get even busier in 2019, when Gidea Park is incorporated into the Crossrail network. Something of a commuter paradise, Gidea Park boasts great transport links into the City from one of the greenest areas in Greater London. The standout space is Raphael Park, a park with a beautiful lake and large playground, and there are several golf clubs in the surrounding area too. The station is named after the 13th century Gidea Hall where Lady Jane Grey was tutored - it was demolished in 1718, and today the architecturally eclectic Romford Garden Suburb stands in its place, representing another wave of this commuter-friendly town's development.
