Queens Road Peckham


Europe, United Kingdom, London

Queens Road Peckham railway station is in the London Borough of Southwark and also serves the area to the east of Peckham, in the London Borough of Lewisham. It is on the Inner South London Line between Peckham Rye and South Bermondsey, and trains also go to Croydon via various routes and beyond. It is on the road of that name and is in Travelcard Zone 2. The station originally opened, with the line, on 13 August 1866 and had two wooden side platforms but three tracks passing through it. Until the First World War trains ran over a now abandoned viaduct from the East London Line stopping at Old Kent Road. The present island platform dates from the 1970s which is on a viaduct with the line: there are 48 steps leading to it, and one block of platform buildings. The station exits on to Queens Road in Peckham.
