Micheldever railway station, in the village of Micheldever Station, serves Micheldever (approximately 2 miles to the south) and the surrounding area in Hampshire, England. It is a flint building with an added veranda. The station is on the South Western Main Line, 58 miles (93 km) south west of London Waterloo towards Southampton and is managed by South West Trains. The station is near the A303 Basingstoke to Andover road approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) from the village.
It was originally called "Andover Road" until Andover got its own station. Following the construction of the station, a cluster of houses and small shops (including the Canada Stores) were attracted to the area, creating the village known as Micheldever Station. No shops remain, though there is a tyre merchant and trailer supplier trading there.
Just prior to electrification of the line in 1967 the track layout was changed when the two side platforms were replaced by an island platform between the tracks.
Generally a train leaves hourly in each direction. Trains towards London Waterloo call at Basingstoke, Farnborough (Main) (Mondays-Saturdays only), Woking (every day) and Clapham Junction (Sundays only). Trains towards Portsmouth Harbour call at Winchester, Eastleigh, Hedge End, Botley, Fareham, Portchester, Cosham, Hilsea, Fratton and Portsmouth and Southsea. On Sundays they call at Winchester, Shawford (every two hours) and Eastleigh, where the train divides: The front part of the train runs to Poole, calling at Southampton Airport Parkway, Southampton Central, Totton, Ashurst New Forest, Beaulieu Road, Brockenhurst, Sway, New Milton, Hinton Admiral, Christchurch, Pokesdown and Bournemouth. The rear part of the train travels to Portsmouth as described above.
A local bus service to Winchester is provided by Mervyn's Coaches, but with only one trip in each direction on weekdays. There is no bus service at weekends.
