The end of the DLR Lewisham extension is a partially submerged station near Lewisham's [shopping centre]?. There is a stairway connection to the South Eastern Trains station.

Trains on South Eastern run very frequently into London Bridge, and then either Cannon Street or Charing Cross via Waterloo East Station. It is generally faster to catch a South Eastern train than to catch the DLR and then tube. If you can, it's worth checking your journey before entering the station on your phone at www.tflwap.gov.uk.

Where to get on/off

The exits for the surface railway are all at the London end of the platforms; so, on trains towards London, it's best to be in the front few carriages and for trains from London, it's best to be as near the back as possible.

DLR trains: if intending to change to a bus, the front of the train is the best place to be. But DLR trains are so small, there's not much in it.
