Peckham Rye railway station is a station on Rye Lane in the centre of the shopping district of Peckham in South London. It opened on 1 December 1865 for LC&DR trains and on 13 August 1866 for LB&SCR trains.[2] It was designed by Charles Henry Driver (1832–1900), the architect of Abbey Mills and Crossness pumping stations, who also designed the grade II listed Denmark Hill and Battersea Park stations between here and London Victoria.

It is between Denmark Hill and Queens Road Peckham on the Inner South London Line, between Denmark Hill and Nunhead on Catford Loop services, and between Queens Road Peckham and East Dulwich on the Sutton and Mole Valley Line. It is in Travelcard Zone 2.

Peckham Rye at a railway crossroads is a key interchange, being served by East London Line, Thameslink and Sutton & Mole Valley services; trains go to Dartford, London Bridge, London Victoria, Highbury & Islington, London Blackfriars, Sevenoaks, West Croydon, Beckenham Junction and Clapham Junction.

Refurbishment[edit]

Ticket gates were installed in May 2009 and during late 2010 the station was refurbished as part of a 'deep clean' by Southern. A former waiting room for platforms 2 and 3, bricked up for over 40 years was partially restored and temporarily re-opened with a possible permanent re-opening being planned.[3]

In popular culture[edit]

In the first episode of The Sweeney, "Ringer", the station's platforms, steps, and entrance were filmed for Regan and Carter's chase on foot of Billy who had stolen Regan's girlfriend's car.
