Borough Green & Wrotham railway station is located in Borough Green in Kent. Train services are provided by Southeastern.

In Spring 2008, the concrete footbridge spanning the tracks to link the platforms was condemned and replaced by a new bridge immediately to the west.

The ticket office in the 'down side' station building is manned for part of the day. At other times, a passenger-operated ticket machine - installed in the mid-2000s at the station entrance - suffices.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is 2 trains per hour to Ashford International via Maidstone East and 2 trains per hour to London Victoria.

There is also a peak hour service via Thameslink across London, serving City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras International before travelling onto Bedford.
