Weybridge railway station serves Weybridge in the Elmbridge district of Surrey, England. It is located on the South Western Main Line operated by South West Trains, 19 miles (30 km) from London Waterloo.

History[edit]

The station was opened by the London and Southampton Railway on 21 May 1838. The line is set in a deep cutting at this point: the main station buildings are at street level on the Up side of the station and are linked to the platforms by stairs and a footbridge. Up and Down platforms serve the slow lines; there is a bay platform on the up side, from which trains operate on the Chertsey Branch of the Waterloo to Reading Line. Services on this line give an alternative route to Waterloo via Staines. This service can also be used to provide a cheaper and quicker route to the Great Western Mainline, by changing at Virginia Water for the service to Reading from Waterloo, for passengers from Surrey.

Service[edit]

Services from the station in trains per hour, at weekday times and to and from Waterloo, are:
