Queens Road Peckham railway station is in the London Borough of Southwark and also serves the area to the east of Peckham, in the London Borough of Lewisham. It is on the South London Line, 2 miles 58 chains (4.4 km) from London Bridge, and trains also go to Croydon via various routes and beyond. It is on the road of that name and is in Travelcard Zone 2.

The station opened with the line on 13 August 1866, and had two wooden side platforms and an intermediate centre platform to serve the third centre line.[3]

Until 1911 passenger trains ran to the East London Line, stopping at Old Kent Road. This link was re-instated on 9 December 2012 by London Overground.

The present island platform dates from the 1970s which is on a viaduct with the line: there are 48 steps leading to it, and one block of platform buildings.

The station has step free access from platform to street via a lift. A ramp is required for wheelchair access to and from the train.[4]

The station exits on to Queens Road in Peckham.


The typical Monday-Saturday off peak service in trains per hour is:

One late night weekday service runs to Battersea Park instead of Clapham Junction, following the former route of the South London Line prior to the inauguration of the ELL Phase 2 extension[5] Two Monday to Friday services to Dalston Junction also start from there.

On Sundays this is:

  • 4 to London Bridge
  • 2 to East Croydon
  • 2 to Crystal Palace
  • 4 to Clapham Junction
  • 4 to Highbury & Islington via Dalston Junction
