Denmark Hill railway station is a railway station in the London Borough of Southwark in London, England, on the Inner South London Line. The station is managed by Southeastern and is served by trains of that company and Southern.[2][3] It is in Travelcard Zone 2. It is located on Champion Park in the south of Camberwell, in an area known as Denmark Hill. It is near to the King's College and Maudsley hospitals. The station is mostly served by local trains from three London terminus stations: London Bridge, London Victoria and Blackfriars.

The station was built in 1865. Its design is in the Italianate style, with an extremely decorative frontage. After a fire in 1980 the building was renovated and restored. The project included the addition of a public house, initially called the Phoenix and Firkin to commemorate the fire, then called O'Neills and now known as the Phoenix. A Civic Trust award was given to the building in 1986.


The platforms are below road level and there is a short tunnel at one end of the platforms (Grove tunnel) and a road bridge (underneath Denmark Hill, the road) at the other. Access to the platforms is currently via steps but lifts are planned to be introduced to provide disabled access particularly for visitors to the nearby hospitals.


The station is managed by Southeastern and is located on their line from London Victoria to Dartford and from Blackfriars to Sevenoaks. Inner South London Line services from the station, to Victoria and London Bridge, are operated by Southern. The typical off-peak trains per hour (tph) is:

London bus routes 40, 176, 185, 484 pass the station and 3 mins walk to the station for bus route 42, 68, 468 and night routes N68.


The station is to be incorporated into London Overground through the newly extended East London Line, under phase 2. Mayor Boris Johnson announced the go-ahead for the extension on 16 February 2009. The new London Overground service is expected to be open in October 2012, connecting Clapham Junction with Highbury & Islington, replacing the existing South London Line service.
