Kemsing railway station serves Kemsing in Kent, England, although the station is actually located on the other side of the M26 motorway to the village. Train services are provided by Southeastern.

The station has for many years been unstaffed. A PERTIS 'permit to travel' machine, located outside the station at road level on the 'up' side, suffices.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service from the station is one train per hour to Ashford International via Maidstone East and one train per hour to London Victoria.

There is also a peak hour service via Thameslink across London, serving City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras International before travelling onto Bedford. On Sundays all trains on the line pass through without stopping. Trains do however call on Bank holidays.
