Malvern Wells railway station was a station on the Worcester and Hereford section of the Great Western Railway between Great Malvern and Colwall. On timetables it was listed as Malvern Wells GW to distinguish it from the nearby Midland Railway station which later became known as Malvern Hanley Road.

The station closed in 1965, but the signal box here remains open as it controls the line towards Ledbury, which becomes single track at this point prior to passing through the tunnels at Colwall and Ledbury. Trains terminating at Great Malvern also run here to reverse before returning east.
