Trains to Norwood Junction

Built in 1838 and then known as the Jolly-sailor station, named after a nearby pub which still stands where South Norwood Hill and High Street join, the now Norwood Junction station is in the heart of South Norwood, London. In a busy commuter district in Travelcard Zone 4, Norwood station provides city-wide services to travellers on the London Overground line, from Highbury & Islington to the north, to Clapham Junction to the west. As a suburb, South Norwood has a leisure centre and busy high street with pubs and cafes, but it has an interesting history to explore. Arthur Conan Doyle lived in a house on Tennyson Road in the early 1890s, and it was here that he wrote many of Sherlock Holmes' mysteries, including the Adventure of the Norwood Builder. It was also in Norwood that a dog recovered the Football World Cup after it had been stolen in the wake of England's 1966 triumph.
