Plumstead railway station serves the suburb of Plumstead, in the London Borough of Greenwich, east of Woolwich Arsenal. It is served by Southeastern.

Plumstead is on the North Kent line and was opened with the line on 30 July 1859. The platforms are below road level: the gabled station buildings stand on an overbridge at the country end. Here there are sidings: the station used to be where the railway system operating within the Royal Arsenal connected with the main line.

There were plans for the Docklands Light Railway to be extended to Plumstead Railway Station. However, Woolwich Arsenal railway station was chosen instead.


Typically there are four trains an hour to London via Greenwich and two trains an hour to London via Charlton, Blackheath and Lewisham.
