Edmonton Green is a railway station on the Lea Valley Lines which form part of the West Anglia Main Line, located in Edmonton in the London Borough of Enfield, north London. It is 8 miles 45 chains (13.8 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Silver Street to the south and Bush Hill Park (on the Enfield Town branch) and Southbury (on the Cheshunt branch) to the north.

Most trains calling at the station are Overground services, however, during peak times, some Abellio Greater Anglia-operated trains call on the main line route to and from Broxbourne or Hertford East.

Its three-letter station code is EDR and it is in Travelcard zone 4.


Edmonton Green was opened as Edmonton (High level) on 22 July 1872 by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) on its new, more direct line from London. Edmonton was renamed Lower Edmonton (high level) on 1 July 1883, with the suffix being dropped when the low level station closed.[3] The name of Edmonton Green was adopted in 1992 as being more indicative of the area served and to promote the nearby Edmonton Green Shopping Centre.

The ticket hall was rebuilt in the early 1980s, and barriers were installed in 2012. Lifts to the platform level became operational in 2015.

In 2015 the Lea Valley Lines transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia operation to London Overground.[4][5] This resulted in the ability of entitled Freedom Pass holders to use their passes at any time, as on the Underground. Edmonton Green was also then added to the Tube map.


Trains are operated by London Overground. The typical off-peak service of trains per hour (tph) is as follows:[6]


London Buses routes 102, 144, 149, 191, 192, 259, 279, 349, 491, 616, W6, W8 and night route N279 serve the station.
