The station has two platforms, one for each direction. Platform 1 is for trains toward Gospel Oak and platform 2 is for trains toward Barking. This station does not have a ticket office except for the security office which is not officially part of the station but is on its premises. However, staff are usually present on the platforms.

This station has two ticket and two Oyster card machines; one for each platform as well as two waiting rooms. This station has a shelter on each platform. The platforms are only reachable by stairs. There are no current plans to introduce lift access.

The station was briefly equipped with APTIS ticketing equipment in 1988/89.


Since January 2010, trains run every 15 minutes in each direction, towards either Gospel Oak or Barking throughout the day. All trains from the station are operated by London Overground. The typical off-peak service in trains per hour (tph) is:

  • 4 tph westbound to Gospel Oak[3]
  • 4 tph eastbound to Barking[3]


Whilst the station has no direct interchange to a tube station, Finsbury Park station is a fifteen-minute walk away along Stroud Green Road. Archway tube station is also a fifteen-minute walk away. There is also a direct bus link - London Buses route W7.[4]

London Bus routes 210;[5] W3 and W7[4] serve the station.


Crouch Hill Station was named as London Overground station of the year at the shining stars awards early in 2013 for Dashboard scores through 2012.
