Liphook railway station is a railway station serving the large village of Liphook, Hampshire, England. It is served by the semi-fast service on the Portsmouth Direct Line running between (London Waterloo) and (Portsmouth Harbour). One train per hour in each direction calls at Liphook station at off-peak times. Due to a short platform at this station, passengers must be in the front five coaches of a train to alight here. The station is managed by South West Trains, who operate all trains serving it.

The Rail-Link bus

Liphook was also one terminus for the circular "Rail-link" bus service which ran between the station and town of Bordon (which was formerly on a branch from Bentley, closed in 1966) via Lindford and Whitehill. This service was withdrawn by South West Trains in spring 2009, but bus service 13 (Alton-Liphook) by South West Train's owner Stagecoach now instead provides a link with many train services.
