East Croydon Station

A busy station on the Southern Railway (formerly South Central Trains) lines from Victoria and London Bridge to various out-of-London destinations such as Gatwick Airport, Brighton, East Grinstead, Tattenham Corner etc.

The station was refurbished sometime around the turn of the millenium, and has exceptionally clear signage in the concourse area, a small WH Smith, a baguette shop, a branch of Timpson's (key-cutting, trophy engraving and dry-cleaning) and a Costa Coffee. There are some exceptionally ordinary "Quick Stop" snack shops on the platforms, too, all run by the same franchise and selling sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee. There are three cash machines outside the west exit to the station, next to a risky bike-park.

Tramlink services also stop outside the station. And some buses. There is a taxi rank next to the east exit.

Like the rest of Croydon, the station is in Zone 5.
