Trains to Orpington

Until the arrival of the railway in 1868, Orpington was little more than a village surrounded by fruit farms and hop fields. The railway brought with it commuters, and nowadays Orpington is a suburban town in the south-east of Greater London, with direct links to Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross. The centre of Orpington is focused on the High Street and The Walnut Shopping Centre, a fifteen minute walk or a short bus ride from the station, or a short bus ride. The Priory - which houses the Bromley Museum - and the Priory Gardens are just north of the shopping centre, but Orpington's other claim to fame is directly next door to the station. When work began on a new station entrance and council buildings in 1926, it uncovered the remains of Crofton Roman Villa, whose ten remaining rooms are now part of a museum. You can visit them during the summer on Wednesdays, Fridays and bank holidays.
