Trains to Sydenham

Before the 19th century, the heart of Sydenham was around what is now known as Wells Park, an area that became popular after the discovery of a collection of medicinal springs in the mid-1600s. Its development as a suburb began when the London and Croydon Railway arrived in the late 1830s, following the route of the filled-in Croydon Canal. Sydenham Station opened in 1839, and the area flooded with wealthy commuters as quality development sprang up near the station - a process that accelerated when the Crystal Palace exhibition hall was relocated to a hill above Sydenham in 1854. The station itself is in Zone 3, and is served by London Overground and Southern, ferrying local commuters to London Bridge, London Victoria and Highbury & Islington. The station is perfectly placed right on Sydenham High Street where visitors will find many independent stores including a bookshop, organic grocery, butchers and bakery, as well as popular chain stores.

Station details & facilities

Sydenham station has entrances on both sides. The main entrance leads to the ticket office and onto platform 2 (towards Croydon and Caterham), and there is a direct entrance onto platform 1 (towards London) from Peak Hill Gardens. A footbridge connects the platforms, but you'll need to use the street-level entrances for step-free access. There are ticket machines outside both entrances.
