Westcombe Park railway station
Westcombe Park station is in Greenwich, London, and is situated on the North Kent line connecting suburbs (eg: Deptford, Greenwich, Charlton, Woolwich, to Dartford, Kent) along the south side of the River Thames with central London stations (London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross).
The station lies at the northern end of a conservation area (Westcombe Park), 5-10 minutes walk down Westcombe Hill from the Blackheath Standard area of Blackheath. It is the closest station to the Woodlands Art Gallery (a small art gallery featuring regular exhibitions of local artists; the same building was until October 2003 also used to house the local history archives), and is also close to the southern approach to the Blackwall Tunnel, a notorious traffic bottleneck.
Nearby bus services include the 286 between Eltham and Greenwich town centre, the 108 between Stratford and Lewisham (via the Millennium Dome), and the 422 between the Millennium Dome and Bexleyheath (via Woolwich).
