New Cross is a Zone 2 station in south London, with regular main line and London Overground services taking local commuters to London Bridge and Cannon Street in a matter of minutes. Along with its near-neighbour New Cross Gate, the station appeared during the rapid growth of London’s railways in the mid-1800s. Just half a mile apart, they were both called New Cross until 1923 – to help avoid confusion today, New Cross uses letters to identify platforms, while New Cross Gate uses numbers. Historically an area of workshops and warehouses, modern New Cross has a reputation for cutting-edge music and design. Arts students from Goldsmiths college, part of the University of London, support a thriving (if rather rough-around-the-edges) cultural scene – what you see in local venues will often creep into the mainstream in a few years’ time. The campus is a few minutes’ walk west of the station on New Cross Road.

Station details & facilities

The station’s ticket hall is on Amersham Vale, just off New Cross Road, and has several ticket desks and ticket machines. It leads directly onto platform C (towards Woolwich and Orpington), with platform D, a bay platform for London Overground trains to Dalston Junction, just around the corner. Access to platforms A and B (towards London Cannon Street) is via a subway with stairs – these platforms don’t have step-free access. A night entrance beside the ticket hall leads directly onto platform C.
