Ham Street railway station serves Hamstreet in Kent, England. It is on a dual-track section of the unelectrified Marshlink Line, and train services are provided by Southern. Like Pluckley station nearby, it features staggered platforms, the southbound platform being south of the Ashford-bound one.

Train services are operated by Class 171 Turbostar diesel trains.

The booking office - open on Mondays to Saturdays mornings - is located in the main station building on the Ashford-bound platform. The two PERTIS passenger-operated self-service ticket machines - one on each platform - have now been removed and replaced with Ticket Vending machines on each platform,[1] which allows a ticket to be purchased from any origin, as opposed to just from Ham Street. The PERTIS passenger-operated self-service machines were installed in connection with a Penalty Fares Scheme in 2008.

A temporary footbridge has been provided in 2014, replacing the previous flat crossing of the railway
