Herne Hill was a collection of upper-class estates until the mid-19th century, when the railway transformed this area to the south of London into the suburb of terraced streets that it is today. The station building was constructed in 1862 and is still impressive, with an especially impressive brick tower that was originally conceived as decorative way to conceal water storage for steam trains. Trains to Herne Hill include services to and from London Victoria, Orpington, St Albans, Sutton and Luton. The area around the station is a mix of small independent shops, cafes and pubs, with the wide green expanse of Brockwell Park just across the road. Within the park you'll find the Brixton City Farm and the Brockwell Park BMW track - but the jewel in its crown is the Brockwell Lido, an open-air swimming pool that opened in 1937 and retains its original Art Deco buildings.
