The first Turkey Street station didn't last long - it opened in 1891, but passenger services ceased in 1919. A second attempt in the 1960s proved more successful, and the station building in use today was added in the 80s. Since 2015 Turkey Street has been part of the London Overground network, with trains to and from Cheshunt to the north and London Liverpool Street to the south, via Seven Sisters and Hackney Central.
Turkey Street is in a mostly residential area, serving the Bull's Cross and Enfield Wash neighbourhoods of north London. The closest shopping area, with a number of pubs and restaurants, is Hertford Road, which is a seven-minute walk east from the station. Head west instead and you'll come to two excellent parks: Forty Hall Country Park, the grounds of a Jacobean mansion; and Myddleton House Gardens, which celebrate the life and work of Edward Augustus Bowles, one of Britain's most famous gardeners and botanists.
