Seven Kings railway station serves the neighbourhood of Seven Kings in East London some 8 miles outside the city centre. It was opened just before the turn of the 20th-century by the then Great Eastern Railway before the underground was extended that far out and was once one of two important junctions in the district. There is a staffed ticket office open every day and self-service ticket machines, though it lies within Travelcard Zone 4, so most passengers use their Oyster card. It’s got four platforms which serve a staggering 3 million passengers every year and is managed by TfL Rail, which will be renamed as the Elizabeth Line in 2018 and extended to Paddington. Overhead roofing provides cover on every platform and there are facilities like digital passenger information displays, automatic PA systems and a long footbridge connecting all the platforms. There are up to eight trains an hour direct to London Liverpool Street in 24 minutes and five hourly departures eastbound to Romford in 8 minutes.

If you come to Seven Kings at the right time, you could catch one of the local football matches at the Cricklefield Stadium. Alternatively, take a long walk along footpaths that wind around beautiful woodland and glistening lakes in the Edwardian South Park.
