Stoke Newington railway station links Stoke Newington to Liverpool Street in central London, and to Cheshunt and Enfield Town further north. Trains generally run every fifteen minutes.

The station is on the Seven Sisters branch of the Lea Valley Lines, and almost all trains passing through the station stop there. The smoked glass/steel-framed ticket office was built in the early 1980s to replace the original ticket office on the same site. The platforms are located in a narrow cutting and are accessed by uncovered concrete staircases also installed at this time.

Stoke Newington is in Travelcard Zone 2.

On 31 May 2015 the station, along with the Lea Valley Lines services, will transfer from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground Rail Operations.[2][3]

Connections[edit]

Buses[edit]

London Buses Routes 67, 73, 76, 106, 149, 243, 276, 393, 476 and Night Routes N73 and N76 serve the station.

Future[edit]

In late June 2013, as part of the 2013 Spending Review, Chancellor George Osborne gave the commitment for the devolution of the Seven Sisters and Chingford lines of West Anglian Suburban to TfL by the end of 2015. As such the station will then transfer to TfL control.
