Sydenham Hill railway station is on the Chatham Main Line in England, serving Sydenham Hill, the Kingswood Estate, and Upper Sydenham, in south London. It is 5 miles 57 chains (9.2 km) down the line from London Victoria and is situated between West Dulwich and Penge East. The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern, as part of the Bromley South Metro service. Sydenham Hill is in Travelcard Zone 3.
The station is at the north-western portal of the Sydenham Hill Tunnel, located in a deep cutting with access to all platforms (and the station itself) via steps. Originally the station was known as Sydenham Hill (for Crystal Palace), due to its proximity to the Crystal Palace, until 1936 when the palace was destroyed by fire.
The typical off-peak service (Mon-Sat) is four trains an hour northbound to London Victoria (via Herne Hill and Brixton) and four trains an hour southbound to Orpington (via Bromley South). On Sundays, these run every 30 minutes each way.
