Oh Happy days! Shoreditch High Street station is finally here. It's about time; the old Bishopsgate Goods Yard site has been out of use since it burnt down in 1964! The new station is a rather snazzy addition to Shoreditch and Brick Lane, and has a weirdly 1970's looking entrance. Is it the orange lettering that does it? Whatever it is we like it. We are now roughly 10 minutes walk from Bethnal Green Station on the Central line, and 12 mins walk from Shoreditch High Street on the East London Line. Progress.

At the moment the line is running a limited service during the week from New Cross/ New Cross Gate, through Surrey Quays, Canada Water, Rotherhithe, Wapping, Shadwell, Whitechapel, Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton, Haggerston, to Dalston Junction. By 23rd of May you'll be able to get all the way from West Croydon to Dalston in a matter of minutes.
