Hadley Wood railway station is in the London Borough of Enfield in north London, England. The station is in Travelcard Zone 6 and serves the suburb of Hadley Wood; it is managed and served by First Capital Connect.

The station has four platforms, but only the outer ones are in everyday use, with First Capital Connect services stopping there. Fast services use the central tracks and do not stop at the station. The inner platforms have recently been re-surfaced, although they are only used in emergency.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 1 May 1885 by the Great Northern Railway (GNR).[2]

Facilities[edit]

There is a Shere self-service ticket machine at the station entrance, installed in Autumn 2008, replacing the previous (Avantix) machine.

Oyster pay as you go can now be used to and from this station as well as on the majority of National Rail services in Greater London. Customers should touch in and touch out at the validators to ensure they are charged the correct fare.
