Petts Wood railway station is on the South Eastern Main Line, serving Petts Wood in the London Borough of Bromley, south-east London. It is 12 miles 53 chains (20.4 km) down-line from London Charing Cross and is situated between Chislehurst and Orpington stations. It is in Travelcard zone 5.
It has four platform faces on islands located between the slow and fast pairs of tracks. To the north of the station is Petts Wood Junction, where the up (London-bound) and down (country-bound) loop lines link the lines from Charing Cross and Victoria. The station is operated by Southeastern.
The station was built on the main line to the north of Orpington and opened on 9 July 1928, initially as a single island platform, with the first tickets printed showing the name as Pett's Wood. The community now surrounding it developed from that date: now the railway divides Petts Wood East and Petts Wood West.
The typical off-peak service is:
- 4tph (trains per hour) to London Victoria via Bromley South and Herne Hill, calling at all stations
- 2tph to London Charing Cross, calling at all stations to Hither Green and then fast to London Bridge
- 2tph to Cannon Street, calling at all stations (except London Bridge until 2018).
- 8tph to Orpington, two of which continue to Sevenoaks
Peak time services also call additionally to London Blackfriars, resulting in a peak time service of up to 12 trains an hour in the London direction.
