Template:Infobox UK station

Radlett railway station is in the Hertsmere district of Hertfordshire, England and lies on the Midland Main Line and is served by First Capital Connect trains as part of the Thameslink Line service.

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 Template:Stnlnk and St Pancras International.

It was built by the Midland Railway in 1868 on its extension to St. Pancras. The original intention had been to call it Aldenham. In the early twentieth century, Walter Phillimore, who owned Radlett, built a large number of houses, one of the first 'commuter villages'.

The station has a PlusBus scheme where train and bus tickets can be bought together for a cheaper price.

Future

From March 2009, Southeastern and First Capital Connect began running some peak hour trains from Kent to Luton and Bedford,<ref name="TLMar09TT">Template:Cite book</ref> though in the off-peak these services only go as far north as Kentish Town. Additional trains from destinations across the larger Thameslink network may call at the station from 2015, when it is likely that the existing Sutton Loop trains will be withdrawn.

Service patterns

Mondays to Fridays there are 4tph at off-peak times, more at peak times. At weekends, there are 2tph to Kentish Town, with evening services running into St Pancras Domestic. From March 2009 FCC started running a peak service to Sevenoaks, however during the day they terminate at Kentish Town.
