Template:Infobox UK station Weybridge railway station is near the established midpoint of Weybridge in Surrey, England and south of its town centre. It is on the South Western Main Line operated by South West Trains, 19 miles (30 km) from London Waterloo.

History

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 or Weybridge Branch of the Waterloo to Reading Line. Stops on this line include the main towns and villages of Runnymede and it gives Weybridge's longer 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, Berkshire from Waterloo, for passengers on or by the South West Main Line but not near the North Downs Line.

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

  • 4 to London Waterloo via Surbiton, of which
