Europe, United Kingdom, London

Streatham railway station is a station in central Streatham in south London. It is off Streatham High Road, and is in Travelcard Zone 3. Services are provided by First Capital Connect and Southern. First Capital Connect services go north to Luton and Bedford via Blackfriars, the City and St Pancras, and south to Wimbledon. Southern services run between London Bridge and West Croydon. A news stand in the street level ticket hall sells newspapers, coffee and snacks. There is no seating at this level. The platforms are lower and accessed by staircases. There has been no disabled access to the platforms since the station forecourt on the up platform side was redeveloped in the 1980s for the construction of a supermarket. Ticket barriers were installed to the entrance in June 2009. A 1920s unrealised plan was to extend the Northern line from Kennington to Streatham via Brixton and Herne Hill replacing the heavy rail tracks to Streatham.
