The original Nunhead station opened in 1871 as part of the Greenwich Park branch line, but the one that passengers arrive at today was built as part of a complete relocation in 1925. Today, Nunhead is an interchange between two lines that link the centre of London with Kent: the London Victoria to Sevenoaks line, and the West Hampstead Thameslink to Dartford. The latter service terminates at London Blackfriars on the weekend. About half a mile west of the station you’ll find Nunhead Green, where there’s a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs, including the historic Old Nun’s Head, which dates back to the 17th century. It’s the source of the area’s name, so it’d be rude not to stop in for a drink. To the south of Nunhead is Peckham Rye Park and Common, a combination of Victorian park and common land with ornamental gardens, woodland and a lake.
