Bromley North railway station is in the London Borough of Bromley in south-east London, in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 10 miles 47 chains (17.0 km) down the line from London Charing Cross. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Southeastern. It is the terminus of the short Bromley North Branch Line from Grove Park.

The station was opened in 1878. It was extensively rebuilt by the Southern Railway in 1925-1926 by the Chief Architect to the Southern Railway, James Robb Scott.

Historical services[edit]

After opening the station trains had direct services to Holborn Viaduct, Victoria, London Bridge, London Cannon Street and London Charing Cross. From April 1976 this was cut back to a peak hour service before being withdrawn completely in 1990.[5] In order to get from Bromley North to Central London passengers have to change at Grove Park.

Current services[edit]

As of December 2011 the typical Monday to Saturday off-peak service is three trains an hour to and from Grove Park for connections to London or other stations in South East London. This service was increased from two to three trains per hour in each direction in December 2011. There is no Sunday or bank holiday service.[6]

During periods of engineering work, there are occasionally through services from Bromley North to stations north of Grove Park.


Bromley North is a hub terminus for buses in outer southeast London, with 14 day routes and 2 night-operating routes serving the station, of which 10 of the day routes terminate/commence at Bromley North.

London Buses routes 61, 119, 126, 138, 146, 227, 246, 261, 269, 314, 336, 352, 354, 367, school journeys route 638 and night route N3 serve the station.[7]

Future proposals[edit]

Proposals have been put forward by Transport for London[8] and the London Borough of Bromley[9] for the Bromley North Line to be extended and connected to either the Docklands Light Railway via a link south of Lewisham, to the Tramlink system from Beckenham Junction, or to an extension of the Bakerloo line from Elephant & Castle. These schemes have not been taken beyond the proposal stage and recommendations are expected to be published around 2018.[needs update]

Additionally, it has been suggested that the Bromley North Line could be connected to London Overground via an extended service from New Cross, although the problems of line capacity make this seem an unlikely solution.[10]
