Foxton railway station serves the village of Foxton in Cambridgeshire, England. The station (as well as the trains serving it) is operated by First Capital Connect.

Departure boards at London King's Cross often give Foxton as the destination of trains which actually continue to Cambridge. This is to encourage passengers travelling to Cambridge to use the faster 'Cambridge Cruiser' services instead.
