Ticket Hall


The former  booking hall at Crystal Palace station closed 25 or so years ago.  In it’s original form it contained a small (Catholic?) Chapel which on closing moved across the road to a former “cafe” & subsequently disappeared altogether. In the intervening period the booking hall was used as an auction room but on Sept. 24th 2012 it was re-opened. The original actual ticket office has been removed & is to be preserved in a Museum.

The Chapel was through the arched window to the right of the pic.
