Located in Rotherhithe in the London Docklands area, Surrey Quays train station has served as an important cog in the region's commuter network since it re-opened in 2010. Along with Rotherhithe's other 2 stations – Rotherhithe and Canada Water – Surrey Quays is part of the London Overground. The station has a busy schedule with trains departing every few minutes with all its destinations served by at least 4 trains per hour. Routes run via Surrey Quays from Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction or Highbury & Islington to West Croydon. The highest frequency of trains – around 16 departures per hour – are those which make the 2-minute journey north to the important transport hub of Canada Water. As well as its bus station, Canada Water has an Underground Jubilee Line interchange connecting to the West End and Canary Wharf. The distance between Surrey Quays train station and Canada Water is also walkable.

Although trains from Surrey Quays offer easy access to a large area of London and its many attractions Rotherhithe and its immediate surrounds also have plenty to offer. As a popular residential area Rotherhithe – from which the Mayflower sailed in 1620 - has a high number of cafés, pubs, restaurants and shops nearby including the Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, just a stone's throw from the station. The Brunel Museum, located in an engine house above this famous engineer's incredible Thames Tunnel, is a must for Rotherhithe visitors. At certain times of the year it is even possible to take a tour here passing under the Thames itself. Escaping into a tranquil space is also possible at the Kings Stairs Gardens or the Stave Hill Ecological Park's nature reserve and education facility.
