Penge West train station is situated in Bromley, in south-east London. It is within walking distance of Crystal Palace Park and two other local stations: Penge East and Crystal Palace. Four trains per hour depart from Penge West in each direction, with direct services to London Bridge taking 21 minutes.

The station originally opened in 1839, next to a level crossing over the High Street. It closed in 1841 and reopened in 1863 in response to a growing demand from the local population and visitors to the Crystal Palace. It was called simply ‘Penge’ until 1923 when the two local stations were renamed ‘Penge East’ and ‘Penge West’. The Crystal Palace Dinosaurs are a short walk from Penge West train station. Created in 1854, they were made to celebrate the removal of the Crystal Palace to this site after the end of the Great Exhibition. Today, they are Grade 1 listed and free to visit.

The station itself has two platforms, with seats, shelters and toilet facilities. There is step free access to platform one but platform two is over a footbridge with steps each side. A staffed ticket office and self-service ticket machine are located on platform one. The station is also served by London Buses on routes 176, 197, 227 and 354.
