Woolwich Arsenal station is a National Rail and Docklands Light Railway interchange located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. The station is a key commuter hub in Travelcard Zone 4, with regular trains to London Charing Cross, London Bridge, Greenwich and Bank. Dating back to 1849, it was completely rebuilt in the 1990s as a modern steel and glass building. Situated in the charming General Gordon Square, the station is named after the nearby Woolwich Arsenal dockyards. Woolwich is a vibrant suburb in southeast London with a rich industrial and military heritage. The Royal Dockyard opened here in 1512, and various military establishments came to join it alongside the Thames, including The Royal Arsenal, The Royal Military Academy, The Royal Horse Artillery and The Woolwich Dockyard. Today, many of them have been converted into residential properties. The area's attractions include the Royal Artillery Museum, the Thames Barrier Centre and Wet n Wild at Waterfront Leisure Centre.
