Railway stationTransportLondon Bridge railway station

London Bridge railway station is London’s oldest station in zone one and the United Kingdom’s fourth-busiest. 

Three train companies operate from London Bridge railway station:

  • Southeastern has suburban train services plus trains to Ashford International, Canterbury, Dover and Ramsgate.
  • Southern has train services to London’s southern suburbs
  • Thameslink services go to Brighton, Horsham, Gatwick Airport, Luton, Cambridge and Peterborough with northbound services stopping in Blackfriars, City Thameslink and St Pancras stations in Central London.

Rail services from London Bridge include four trains per hour to Bedford, four trains per hour to Brighton, two trains per hour to Cambridge, six trains per hour to Gatwick Airport, four trains per hour to Luton (also stopping at Luton Airport), two trains per hour to Peterborough and hourly trains to Ashford International, Canterbury, Dover and Ramsgate.

Many of the trains serving London Bridge station continue onwards to Blackfriars, Cannon Street, Charing Cross and St Pancras stations and services are frequent enough for a regular train to be a more convenient option than taking the tube. You can usually count on at least 10 trains per hour to Blackfriars and St Pancras, 14 trains per hour to Cannon Street and 16 trains per hour to Charing Cross.

The station has recently undergone a major renovation programme and it is now a modern transport terminal with plenty of facilities including all the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that you would expect in a major London railway station. Shops include branches of Boots the chemist, Hamleys toy shop, M&S Simply Food, Ted Baker, The Body Shop, TM  Lewin and  WHSmith newsagent. Cafes and restaurants include Bob’s Lobster, Caffè Nero, Costa Coffee, Delice de France, Greggs, Krispy Kreme, Leon, Pret a Manger, Upper Crust, the West Cornwall Pasty Co. and Yo! Sushi.

It is in Southwark at the southern end of London Bridge and just a short walk to the centre of the City of London. It is close to sights on the south bank of the Thames including HMS Belfast, Borough Market, the Shard and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
