Originally named Croydon, West Croydon station lies in what was once the terminal basin of the Croydon Canal. First opening in 1839, its last major overhaul to the station was in the 1930s, when the original station building and ticket office were closed and converted into shops. Today the station is one of south London’s busiest transport hubs, with services running to London Bridge, London Victoria, Sutton and Highbury & Islington. A newly built entrance links the station to the adjacent tram terminus – which lies in close proximity to Croydon bus station and its regular services throughout London. The borough of Croydon has a rich cultural history and plays home to several major art institutions, including Fairfield Halls and the BRIT School, whose alumni include Adele, Amy Winehouse and Imogen Heap. The town’s busy shopping centre is moments away from the station – just turn left out of the main exit.

Station details & facilities

The main entrance is located next to a small parade of shops on London Road. Steps lead directly down to platforms 1 and 3 (towards London), and a bridge leads to platform 4 (towards Sutton). A secondary entrance on Station Road offers direct access to platform 4. The main station building includes both manned and automated ticketing services, as well as a small newsagent. London Overground trains use platform 1.
