Elmers End station is a railway station and tram terminus in Elmers End, South London, England. It is in the London Borough of Bromley, and Travelcard Zone 4 17 km (11 miles) south of London Charing Cross. The railway through Elmers End was opened by the South Eastern Railway on 1 April 1864 as an extension of the Mid-Kent Line from New Beckenham to Addiscombe; there was a branch, opened on 29 May 1882 to Hayes at this station. The portion of the line to Addiscombe, which was originally named "Croydon (Addiscombe Road)", was closed in 1997 when the trams took over much of the trackbed from Elmers End.

The Hayes line service on the suburban commuter railway line between Hayes and London Charing Cross through Elmers End is still in use. The station is on Elmers End Road (A214), at the north-east corner of South Norwood Country Park.

One former railway platform is now the terminus for Tramlink Line 1 services to Croydon.

Services

Monday to Saturday daytimes there is a train every 15 minutes towards Central London either to Cannon Street or Charing Cross and to Hayes in the other direction. Evenings and Sundays there is an half-hourly service in each direction.
