Picture of Thornton Heath Station

Historical version 9 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 are also occasional trains to Milton Keynes via Shepherd's Bush.

There is a small caff just outside the station and another on platform 2 that is open in the mornings only selling hot and cold drinks and a few snacks, and a kiosk in the booking hall. Taxi office outside the station on the right as you leave the main entrance. Bus stop and cash machines 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 is accepted on all trains, but you can't buy an Oyster card at the station, or get Oyster problems sorted out at the ticket office.

Accessibility: There is step-free access to all platforms, but no step-free transfer from trains to platforms. Indeed, the step is often quite substantial. The step is smaller towards the London end of trains.
