Bredbury railway station serves the town of Bredbury in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England.

It was built by the Sheffield and Midland Railway Companies' Committee in 1875 on the line between New Mills and Manchester London Road (now Piccadilly).

The station was modernised in 1976 the buildings on the New Mills side being replaced. The platforms were raised with the result that the old waiting room on the Manchester side is three steps down. The original stationmaster's house survives as does the 1916 footbridge.
