Haydons Road railway station is in north-east of the London Borough of Merton in South London. The station is served by Thameslink trains and by a limited number of Southern services during the morning and evening peak. It is on the Sutton Loop Line and is in Travelcard Zone 3.

It was opened, originally as Haydens Lane, by the Tooting, Merton & Wimbledon Railway (itself jointly owned by the London and South Western Railway and the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway) on 1 October 1868. The ticket office is on the up side of the station; the original station buildings were redeveloped during 1991 and 1992 when land adjacent to the up platform was redeveloped for housing. Until the advent of Thameslink it was served by the London Bridge loop trains via Wimbledon.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is 2 trains per hour to Luton via London (clockwise around the loop) and 2 trains per hour to Sutton via Wimbledon (anticlockwise). Additionally, Southern runs between 3 and 5 services per day between Wimbledon and London Bridge.
