How to get to Selhurst Park Stadium
Although there is a Crystal Palace train station, it’s two miles from the stadium, so it’s not the best option for travelling there. Rather than taking the train to Crystal Palace railway station, instead take a train to Selhurst, Thornton Heath or Norwood Junction. Each of these stations is roughly a 15-minute walk from Selhurst Park.
If you’re coming from London Euston station, take the Northern Underground line to London Bridge, then transfer onto a Southern train to Norwood Junction station. You can then walk the final 15 minutes to the station, for a total journey time of roughly 50 minutes.
Alternatively, there’s parking at the stadium if you wish to travel by car, or you can cycle and take advantage of the free bike storage at Selhurst Park, which opens three hours before kick-off.
