History

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 the Phoenix. A Civic Trust award was given to the building in 2009

Design

The platforms are below road level, with the short Grove Tunnel at one end and Denmark Hill road bridge at the other. In the period 2011-2013 the station underwent a redesign with the construction of a new ticket office with access from Champion Park, new walkways and lifts to the platforms.
