Sydenham is an inner-city area of southeast London officially in the London Borough of Lewisham, but also spreading into Bromley and Southwark. Sydenham was located in Kent until 1889 when the County of London was formed. In 1965 Sydenham became part of Greater London.

The area was one of the first in southern England to have a railway station, opening 1839 by the London and Croydon Railway.
