History

The station was opened on 1 March 1849 by the Eastern Counties Railways as Enfield. It was renamed Enfield Town on 1 April 1886.

The original station-house was demolished in 1872. The fine 17th-century brickwork facade, once attributed to Christopher Wren, was dismantled, and reconstructed at the Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kensington.

Its place was taken by a brick station building with an attached station-master’s house and a walled forecourt. This in turn was replaced in 1957 by the present building.

Operation of the station was transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground in 2015.
