Station nameboard

Eden Park railway station serves Eden Park in the London Borough of Bromley in south east London, in Travelcard Zone 5. The station and all trains serving it is operated by Southeastern on the Hayes line. Opened in 1882 by the South Eastern Railway, it is the first station along the branch line from Elmers End to Hayes and still has most of its original wooden buildings, surviving an arson attempt by the suffragettes in 1913 and a partial rebuilding in 1922.[2]

The railway platform saw a dramatic transformation during the late 90s with the walls painted by local graffiti artists, Mesa and Aztek, and has since returned to its original state.
