Elverson Road is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in St John's in south-east London, and situated in a residential district.

Upon opening, the station was one of the most lightly used on the DLR network, but traffic has increased significantly following the construction of several new apartment complexes in the area.

The station is located between Deptford Bridge and Lewisham stations, and is on the boundary of Travelcard Zone 2 and Zone 3.

The station site straddles the boundary between the boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich, and passengers must briefly cross into Greenwich when walking over the footbridge to reach the opposite platform.

Selective Door Operation is in use at this station on Mondays-Fridays when 3-car trains call here.
