City Travel in South East London

City Travel in South East London Most travellers to South East London begin their journey at Waterloo Station.

From here there is access to a number of main tube lines as well as rail links to Brixton Station, Greenwich Station and Lewisham.

Tube lines take you to Bermondsey, North Greenwich and Deptford Bridge as well as into the City and Central London.

Take the Jubilee Line to the fashionable emerging shopping district around Bermondsey Street or get there by taking the Bus 343 or RV1 from Waterloo.

As with most of London, taking a car anywhere in South East London is just not cool. The air quality in London is at an all-time low and people are being encouraged to use public transport or cycle and walking routes.

Boroughs like Lewisham operate good cycle routes and the council website can give you access to online maps.

Places such as Bromley suffer from extremely high congestion and the council is working hard to address this. Bromley has 50 miles of cycle route and across London there is an initiative to get from A-Z using cycles. Get fit and healthy by hiring a bike from one of the many cycle hire companies in South East London. Southwark Cyclists offer discounted cycle purchase and cycle hire information. Visit the official site for more information on how you can improve your health.

Bromley Council offer freedom bus passes for those over 60 and people with disabilities.

Croydon operates a Tramlink service and runs between Wimbledon, Beckenham, and New Addington.

Croydon and Lewisham, amongst many other London boroughs, operate a Taxicard scheme for people with serious mobility problems. Those wishing to use this service order their taxi and mention their Taxicard, they will then only be charged a nominal fee to travel with up to four companions. More information on this is available from the Taxicard website.

Trains run regularly from Orpingham and Lewisham to all of London’s major stations including Waterloo East, Victoria and Charing Cross. You can use one of these lines to link up to London Victoria and catch the Gatwick Express to Gatwick Airport.
