Streatham has been on major transport routes for centuries. It lies on the old Roman road which once stretched all the way from the country’s capital, Londinium, to the south coastal town of Portslade. The area remained an important trackway after the departure of the Romans, acting as the main coach road to Croydon and Lewes in the 17th century, and later becoming the route of the turnpike road from London to Brighton – which went on to become the basis for the modern A23. Streatham’s station is located on Streatham High Road, south London, within Travelcard Zone 3. It’s a busy spot for commuters, with trains running Luton, St Pancras and the City to the north, and Wimbledon to the south via the Thameslink and Southern rail services. The area surrounding the station got a major facelift with the arrival of the Streatham Hub development project, which added a supermarket, leisure centre and residential flats.
