Ravensbourne railway station is in the London Borough of Bromley in south London. It is in Travelcard Zone 4, and the station and all trains are operated by Southeastern.

Opened in 1892 by the London Chatham and Dover Railway as part of their new Catford Loop line, the station retains its Victorian air of a quiet country station although its roadside booking office was rebuilt after a fire in 1988.[2]


Ravensbourne is served half hourly by Kentish Town to Sevenoaks Thameslink services jointly operated by Southeastern and First Capital Connect on weekdays. On weekends trains only run as far as London Blackfriars, solely operated by Southeastern.

The typical off-peak service is:
