Trains to Purfleet

Purfleet station in Thurrock, Essex is situated north of London Road, 16 miles from Fenchurch Street station in the capital. On weekdays, the station carries a steady stream of commuters to and from central London - although it is beyond the city's six fare zones, passengers can still use a pay-as-you-go Oyster card to cover their journey. The station dates back to 1854 and was built on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway, and its proximity to the Thames hints at Purfleet's past as a busy river port. In addition to its port trade, Purfleet was considered a Victorian leisure attraction, offering countryside and riverside walks and bathing at Wingrove's Hotel. Today, the town is largely residential. The local economy was aided in 2015 by the opening of a centre of High House Production Park, a centre of excellence for creative industries - among other things, it's the base for the Royal Opera House's prop workshop.
