The station lies on the north-south Midland Main Line and is served by First Capital Connect trains as part of the Thameslink Line service. It is on the boundary of Travelcard Zone 3 and Travelcard Zone 4.

It was built by the Midland Railway in 1868 on its extension to St. Pancras. From 1875 the Midland opened a service to Victoria on the London, Chatham and Dover Railway and received coaches from the London and South Western Railway for attachment to north-bound trains.

Services

The typical off-peak service from the station is four trains per hour southbound to London, Wimbledon and Sutton, and four trains per hour northbound, of which two terminate at St Albans and two run to Luton.

East Midlands Trains InterCity services from Leeds, Sheffield and Leicester run through at high speed, but do not stop. Interchange with InterCity services can be made at Luton and St Pancras International.

Development

From March 2009, Southeastern and First Capital Connect began running some peak hour trains from Sevenoaks to Luton,<ref name="TLMar09TT">Template:Cite book</ref> though in the off-peak these services turn back at Kentish Town.
