Historical version 4 of Thornton Heath Station (view current version)

Zone 4 rail station in South London.

Almost all trains go from either Platform 1 (southbound, towards West Croydon, or East Croydon and beyond) or Platform 2 (northbound, towards Victoria and London Bridge), with Platforms 3 and 4 only being used when Platforms 1 and 2 are closed for engineering works.

There is a small caff on Platform 2, and another more expensive one but with a better range of food just outside the station. Newspaper kiosk in the booking hall. Taxi office outside the station on the right as you leave the main entrance. Bus stop on the left.

This is the nearest station to Crystal Palace FC's ground (Selhurst Park), so on home match days it can be very busy.

Oyster pre-pay is *not* accepted on any trains serving this station, and there are regular ticket checks so don't assume you'll get away with it!
