Trains to Purley

Opened by the London and Brighton Railway in the summer of 1841, Purley station sits on the Brighton Main Line, within Travelcard Zone 6, in the London Borough of Croydon. The station has had several aliases over the years; originally known as Godstone Road, the station was closed due to low traffic, before being reopened as Caterham Junction in 1856. The station was finally renamed Purley in October 1888 and subsequently rebuilt in 1896 to accommodate the widening of the East Croydon Main Line. Purley boasts a star-studded list of former residents, including survivalist Ray Mears, illusionist Derren Brown, musician Francis Rossi, actress June Brown and actor Peter Cushing OBE - the town was also often referenced in the comedy sketch show, Monty Python. Purley recently topped Britain's rich list, as the most affluent suburb, with its large gated estates, luscious greenery and large spacious housing, all within 30 minutes of central London.
