Trains to Kingswood

Kingswood station is a tremendous example of late-Victorian railway architecture, with a mock-Tudor frontage and a charming white awning. The station opened in 1897, and once had a terrace on top of the station canopy. Sadly this didn't prove a success - try enjoying an elegant afternoon tea near a working steam train and you'll soon see why. It was removed in 1920. Today the station serves commuters bound for London Bridge, and also has services to Purley and Tattenham Corner. Much of Kingswood is residential, but there are some fascinating buildings to rival the station. The Gothic mansion of Kingswood Warren is the work of architect T.R. Knowles, and was used as the BBC's Research and Development department until 2010. Kingswood Court is equally charming, built in a Georgian style with purple-red bricks. If you're a golfer, you'll find Kingswood Golf Course and Surrey Downs Golf Club about a mile to the east.
