A branch from the Wycombe Railway at Bourne End was built by the Great Marlow Railway; this was opened on 28 June 1873, and was worked by the Great Western Railway. The terminus was originally named Great Marlow. The branch was absorbed by the GWR on 6 August 1897. On 14 February 1899, the station was renamed "Marlow".
The line was originally a branch from the Wycombe Railway route between Maidenhead and High Wycombe. When this service was withdrawn north of Bourne End in 1970, Marlow station became the terminus of the Marlow Branch Line which leaves the main Great Western Main Line at Maidenhead.
The service is known locally as the "Marlow Donkey", which is commemorated by a local pub of the same name.
Services are provided by First Great Western; at peak times these shuttle between Marlow and Bourne End, but off-peak and at weekends they run through to Maidenhead, reversing at Bourne End.
