08 November 2012 - Important information for patients and visitors

From Sunday 9 December 2012, local rail services via Denmark Hill station will change. These changes may affect how you travel to and from King’s.

These changes follow the completion of the London Overground extension from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction.

The new London Overground extension will replace the current South London Line (SLL) service between Victoria and London Bridge. This means there will be no direct trains between London Bridge and Denmark Hill (you will need to change at Queens Road) and a reduction in services between Denmark Hill to Victoria from four services per hour to two services per hour.

The extension will create a south-western branch of the Overground network. There will be trains every 15 minutes between Highbury and Islington and Clapham Junction via Surrey Quays, stopping at all stations in between.

These include:

  • Wandsworth Road
  • Clapham High Street
  • Denmark Hill
  • Peckham Rye
  • and Queens Road.

The new line will also bring links to new destinations and connections to other services including:

  • Canada Water
  • Shadwell
  • Whitechapel
  • and Shoreditch High Street.

You will also be able to change trains at Surrey Quays to continue south to West Croydon and Crystal Palace.

For further details, view the Overground map.

More information
King’s is working closely with Transport for London (TfL) to ensure that our patients and visitors are informed well in advance of the changes, along with alternative travel and route options going forward.

We will be holding a series of staff, patient and visitor information sessions on 4, 5, 11 and 12 December at both King’s and SLAM (times to be announced shortly).

In the meantime if you have any specific queries about the changes please visit the TfL website at www.tfl.gov.uk/overground

If you would like to plan your journey in advance, the TfL online journey planner will reflect the changes to the services from 23 November.
