Clacket Lane services are two motorway service stations on the M25 motorway midway between junctions 5 and 6, in Surrey, United Kingdom, adjacent to the parish borders between the parishes of Limpsfield, Surrey and Westerham, Kent, a small village and a town respectively. The services are owned by RoadChef.
Clacket Lane services are one of the largest and busiest services on the UK motorway network serving traffic on the extremely busy southern stretch of the M25 'London orbital motorway', and traffic to and from the coastal ports and the Channel Tunnel.
