Trains to South Croydon

South Croydon station in south London in Travelcard Zone 5 sits on the Brighton Line. The station was opened in 1865 to provide more space for the reversal of local trains, but it soon became an important rail hub as the town rapidly expanded throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, booming in the Industrial Revolution and once again in the 1920s and 1930s, when it was home to London's main airport. Today, Croydon is known as the home of popular TV sitcom, Peep Show, but there's much more to the area than telly fame. It's a multicultural melting pot brimming with brutalist and art-deco architecture and a retail haven with The Whitgift Centre, once the biggest shopping mall in Europe when it opened in 1970. Other highlights include the market on Surrey Street, dating back to 1276, and Croydon Palace, the summer residence for the Archbishop of Canterbury for over 500 years.
